Reply To: First Gout Attack

John Harding

Thanks for all your replies, I’m in my third day now and have got some naproxcin from the doctor which is may start tomorrow. This is the most frustrating thing to suffer from as you know it will come back again isn’t it. I love to be active and have an outdoors job which I can’t do if I am having a gout attack. I was recently made redundant and was just getting my act together again. I empathise with you all and thanks for the advice. I am getting a uric acid test a few weeks after this bout dies down and see what that brings. I suppose the upside could be I will have to live a healthier life now.
