@Keith, good to hear from you mate. I wish my attacks lasted 5-7 days. This Sunday will make this attack 3 weeks. Its much much better now though and I can walk on it albeit painfully. A mistake I made may have been stopping Naproxen 10 days into treatment because I felt it was doing nothing for me (it brought very slight pain relief and I couldn’t see much in the way of inflammation reduction). I was taking the maximum prescribed dose of 500mg twice a day. I’m getting my UA levels tested on Monday and was hoping you could advise if these results would be accurate whilst being at the end of an attack or if I should delay the blood test till later..?


@nobody
, yep read that post, thanks. I can guarantee you that soaking my the affected foot in Epsom salt really did work. It definitely brought me relief.
Take a look at this site which also has input from Keith:
