Hi Keith,

With regards to the second paragraph, it seems that rheumatologists never give all this information out. They just give the very basic and prescribe medication. It would be nice if they discussed sleep patterns and maybe a little information on self test uric acid kits.

Funny actually as I’ve always preferred sleeping on my front but it makes me bend my toes more (worried that causes attacks) so I started avoiding sleeping in that position and moved over to my back but after reading those last articles it seems as sleeping on your side is the ideal compromise.

Ive recently started using sleep monitoring apps to see which time and position works best for me.

Regards,
James
