If it's an acute flare of gout then NSAIDS like naproxen o diclofenac can be advised along with tramadol. In severe painful condition colchicine can be given in acute stress within 36 hours after the acute episode subsides then the Uric acid levels need to be kept below 6 milligram per deciliter as maintenance via uric acid lowering drugs. Alcohol and foods containing high purines eg red meat and other junk food should be avoided.

Strict diet control can only lower uric acid to 1 milligram. Treatment with Allopurinol or febuxostat should be emphasised upon and taken regularly. Diet control plays an additional part and helps in reducing the severity of flares.

I have my next Dr. appointment in a couple of weeks and with the help of my new shoes I am hoping I wont have to get shot's in both of my heels again for Plantar Fasciitis. I also haven't had to wear my boot as long in the evenings. The only thing I wish is that they had a few cuter styles in boots. I love both pairs of orthofeets that I bought.
