Gout? Anyone had this?

Okay so my latest ailment is gout. I had a Dx of plantar fasciitis a few years and it resolved. I don't drink nor am I much of a meat eater. I eat a lot of raw veggies which apparently contributes to gout.

I feel like I'm falling apart.
(((HUGS))), I'm sorry you're feeling this way. I don't know much about gout. I do know someone who has it. All I really know is that he is on medication and can't eat shellfish. I've heard it can be very painful.
Yes, it's so painful and so intermittent. My next doctor's appt is Thursday so we'll see.
I do not have it, but my father did. It can be incredibly painful. Sorry you are dealing with this condition.

Check into cherry juice. Organic black, and tart cherry juices are supposed to work wonders for gout pain. This actually helped my father more than medications.

The Food and Drug admin is starting to crack down on companies who manufacture cherry products that claim to "cure gout", but there is plenty of info out there about the benefits of adding cherries to your diet.
When I hear terms like "hipster" I think, who told cliques they could leave high school??

I was diagnosed with it and the prescription helped the pain, but I'm convinced it was a hairline fracture he didn't see as it was not as horrifyingly painful as I've heard described.
I see a lot of the straight Tart Cherry juice that we carry get bought by people with gout.
Kiva! Microfinance works.

The pain is subsiding but I haven't had spinach for 2 days. I'm going to hate giving that up. Thanks for the replies.
Where is your gout? My mother was diagnosed with gout in her foot last spring and the foot surgeon put a shot of something directly into that joint and the next day, she was greatly improved and continued to improve with no further treatment at all. She didn't change her diet other than adding cherry juice.

I thought I had gout about a month ago because my symptoms were so similar to my mother's but an ultrasound revealed I had ruptured a joint capsule in my foot instead and isn't related to gout.

I hope you feel very much better really soon!!!

What about the leaves of root vegetables like radish and turnip greens? You can cook them like spinach and are similar.
The boyfriend had a bad case of gout last year. It's the only time I've seen him cry in the 6 years we've been dating (other than when his dad died and when he had to put one of his dogs to sleep). And this is a man who put an axe through his foot and cut it half off, and has been injured with hedge trimmers and chain saws. He can take pain real well. But the gout hit him hard.

For him, it's mostly diet related. He eats a terrible diet. Too much fat, too much sugar, too much junk, too much processed food. He also needs to watch shellfish. Luckily he doesn't drink beer as it seems to also be a trigger.
The cherry concentrate seems to have really helped him.

Hope you get it under control and feel better soon.
