My doctor says this is coincidence and a gout attack always comes on without warnng
I’d say your doctor is nuts. Early on, my Gout attacks would occur without warning. But as I have dealt with this for several years now, I know what to look for and, more importantly, what to feel for.
Fabian, as soon as you start to get “mildish aches” hit that quickly with Colchicine and Naproxen, preferably pharmacutical grade, but over the counter will work. Take max doses. That should help squash it.
For further information, look up in the right hand box of this web page to “The Gout Search” and type in “2 hour Gout Relief” or however you want to phrase it, and Keith has some great tips on how to kill that Gout Attack quickly. It sounds very similiar to what I just advised you.
