Today I've been suffering from a gout flare up. When I woke up I had trouble getting into the shower because my foot was so painful. I have meds dedicated to emergency flare-ups, they are working but not fast enough.

The doctor said the older I get the more likely I am to suffer from them.

I'm really grateful that I work from home, and I'm really grateful the weather is finally cool. Can't imagine going through this in the heat.

@art I hope the flare up does down quickly!! I have found taking allopurinol has been working for me to prevent them. I was having 3 or 4 a year. Cherries and cherry juice never seemed to work for me to prevent but never tried it to help relieve matters. Anti inflammatories never work quick enough when having an attack. Best to avoid them happening.

@stug I've been on the allopurinol but I'm waiting for me refill. The gout decided to attack when my defenses were down. 😁

@art ahhhh nasty and annoying! Glad you are on it at least.
