Hi Simon,

I’m sad your doctor hasn’t prepared you for gout flares during the first few months of uric acid control. Because it is a common occurrence that most doctors provide help for. In the form of preventative or as required pain relief.

There are no fixed rules for how long this will take. The only relevant fact is that gout recovery takes less time if you get uric acid lower. But other members have said that a cautious approach suits them better.

I know you didn’t mention diet, Simon. So I won’t respond to the comments about food in this topic. Unless you ask me to.
