Thank you for all the useful information. What both of you say make a lot sense. I usually get constant flares with little relief but this last one started December 27th and hasn’t let up. At this point I’m concerned about joint destruction. Last level was 5.5 mid December. I’m on 80 mg urloric My doctor obviously doesn’t know a whole lot and told me she doesn’t know what else to do. She refered me to a rheumatoid arthritis Doc a month out. I’m gonna get a test prior to my appointment.
