Hello, ‘Nobody’ 🙂

My UA level was tested a few months ago and was ‘within expected parameters’. Though I have to say this wasn’t part of a testing programme, just a response to a flare. This is the NHS, after all… 😉 No diet changes to speak of either.

You’re probably right that this isn’t gout-related, though through grim experience I’ve found you pretty much have to treat every niggle as a potential attack trigger and jump on it immediately. Just a couple of Dicloflex can head off a painful six weeks! (Though I now have colchicine in my armoury – bit wary of taking it though – have probably read too many biochemistry sites…).

I’ll probably end up at the quacks one way or another – probably to beg for more anti-inflammatories!

Thanks for responding – I like the site.
