    Geez Jim, you should have timed this better so I could have visited you in the hospital last week! Hope those expensive pills do the trick!

    If you look online, pretty much every food is on a list somewhere for causing gout. Right before mine flaired up I ate a bunch of goose jerky, which I don't normally eat. Without eating it again I can't say if it was the cause. The base of my big toe had given me some minor discomfort before and I thought it was just a normal ache or previous injury acting up.
    Gout basically feels like broken glass grinding around in your joints.

    Glad you're on the mend, Jim. I've never experienced gout & hope it remains that way.

    Yep, that gout. Hope you get it handled soon. But the medicine you take has many side effects. I can't eat as my stomach is always upset. If I'm not throwing up what I eat. It runs out the back with no problem. I hate this medicine. I'm not taking anymore until I talk to my Doctor. Which is next week I believe I can hold out until then. I believe that I will lose many pounds by then.

    Geez, Jim! I really hope you get over this as quickly as possible; sounds nasty!

    I just hope the rest of you old farts don't come up with it. It seems like it's a old man thing. I know several that have had a few bouts with it. I'm going to try and stay away from it for now on.

    Further evidence that gettin' old ain't for sissies. Hang in the OMJ. I understand that if you drink enough whiskey you'll feel better.

    I only had one bad episode and that was six months ago. Not even a minor tingling since. But I still have the oversized Nikes I bought at that time, just in case it flairs up again.;)

    I'm 35. I've met a few other guys under 40 who've had it.

    Thanks, Old Man...I needed something else to worry about.

    Let me tell you about my run-in with shingles, or the grape sized hemorrhoid I had removed in '04 (got that one in a jar in the camper to show you in case we ever go fishin...great campfire conversation piece) .....or my gallstones, kidney stones, bladder stones, inguinal hernia, or naval fistula. I got more, if yer interested!

    My Dr. only has me take the Colchicine during active flare ups. If I take that med every 8 hrs. starting at the first sign of a flare up, its usually over in 2-3 days. Because of some of the other meds I'm on, I'm fairly prone to gout, but 300mg/day of Allopurinol mostly keeps it at bay.
