Looks like I spoke too soon! Woke up this morning and my bunion area is VERY sore again. What the hell?!?! This is starting to get really annoying.
Do most people have lingering symptoms all the time. Or do you completely heal eventually?
It’s now been almost 5 weeks. I go back to the Dr next week to have UA levels tested, but how can one ever even consider starting Allopurinol if you can’t ever get over the damn attacks, to begin with? What else can I do to get through this? I’ve watched my diet, I drink at least 3 liters of water/juice a day, cut out beer entirely, I take celery seed and cherry pills.
I stopped taking Indocin (switched to Ibuprofen)because it was hurting my stomach and making me depressed. But I started it back up again today (gonna call Dr and see if there is an alternative).
Any words of encouragement? Will I ever completely heal?
