I am 39 years old and was diagnosed at age 23. I took 600mg of alopurinal daily for almost 10 years and colchacine during flare ups always. Both for nothing as my Uric Acid levels have never gone under 12 and most of the time is up at 14. I have had both elbows swell to the point of bursting. I have tried diet, no alcohol, holistic, cherry juice, blah blah blah. I live in incredibly debilitating pain daily even with no flair up due to permanent joint damage in almost every joint. Not sure how much longer I can deal with this….
