Irma, just my opinion, but I’m not sure those whiskeys are actually helping you…even if they don’t cause gout, they are causing dehydration right before (or while) you sleep for hours & hours…and I am blaming that exact factor for what happened to me. I started drinking whiskey to help me sleep back in March, just 1-2 oz per night, but wasn’t drinking enough water. Everything hit for me in June.
No problems even with plenty of regular beer consumption until then.
Just letting you know my experience, not telling you what to do 🙂 & of course at the moment I’m not even 100% sure it’s gout (thanks probably to poor docs), although my kind friends here on the forum know it is, by my symptoms!
