Walking on a gouty foot while on NSAIDS?

If I wake up and I have some minor pain - not the full blown gout/initial gout flareup - and I take indomethacin so that my foot feels relatively it okay to walk on it for an hour or two?

I have had a prolonged bout of gout for about 3-4 weeks hasn't really gone away...just a lingering stiffness/minor pain. Indomethacin helps but I don't know if I should still be resting more or just pop some pills and take a walk.

I am 29.

a hour or 2 shouldn't be too bad. ive had times i had to work through bad gout attacks and found walking on it even though painful sometime loosened it up.

you should be ok for a couple hours.
