First things first. I am applying for a Personal Gout Diary, as you suggested previously.
I quite agree with you regarding taking different NSAIDs willynilly is really not a good idea. I have been stuck in the middle of the bush with no access to doctors or pharmacist and have just taken whatever I could get my hands on, although nothing seems to help. I am seeing a chiropractor first thing tomorrow morning now that I am in the city and will ask him to prescribe a pain management schedule and also to advise me on what might be the cause of the problem. I’m just trying to get some relief. I have still not had a definitive diagnosis of gout, but hoping that when I see the rheumatologist in a weeks time, he will be able to give me some answers.
