    Stay well hydrated gents. Dillution is a solution to a point. Fresh water, not that barley water.

    Folks that haven't had the gout experience don't realize just how much pain we're talking about... I haven't had an attack in 6 years, but I'm religious about taking Allopurinol daily. Something else to worry about: gout can bring on bursitis. Have it in my left hip right now and they can't do anything about it other than cortisone shots. Treatment consists of, ahem, grandpa's hip elixir. When you get our age you do whatever you have to do...

    I once limped gingerly to a school function for my daughter and her teacher asked about my walk. Told her I was recovering from a gout attack and previously had so much pain I wanted to chainsaw my foot off....she said her husband had talked of the same thing, also having an attack. She said she thought he was exaggerating about the pain....now she knew better.

    I'm now taking Feboxastat (SP?) and no attack for several years. The allopurinol did not stop them. Serious diet changes also helped. I just breath air now.
    Most of the tanks are gone and the windows don't rattle anymore. I won't be able to sleep now.

    Who'd thunk, something as small as your toe could turn you into a whimpering little girl? And, by the end of the second night with no sleep, you'd consider a 44 HP as pain relief?

    I had it once. Once was enough. I didn’t hunt deer this year for the first time since the mid-80s. Everybody I know has severely cut back their deer consumption because of gout fear so my deer freezer is still 3/4 full. At the rate I’m going through it I may still have some left next fall.

    Drinking a ton of water helps keep it from getting worse and makes it go away faster. Of course you make yourself miserable walking to the bathroom.
