I have gout too....if you stick to a low purien (not sure if I spelt that right) diet it will help with flare ups. avoid cured meats, like bacon and Jerky, especialy deli meats. avoid red meats and alcohol as well. I still have some of these things, in moderation, but I havent had any flare ups since I started limiting those sourses of protien. hope this helps! :)

Do u get the uric acid cleanse over the counter? Still waiting for alpurinol and steroids to kick in.

I got mine from my local health/herbal store. I dont think it made he gout go away any faster. I used it to get rid of any excess that might be left.

I had surgery 10 months ago, lost 110 lbs, am 25 lbs from my goal weight. I don't know if I have gout or not - never did before, but in the last couple of weeks I've gotten sudden horrible pain in my middle toe and the one next to my big toe... but not the big toe... to the point where I can not walk. It sometimes lasts 10 minutes, sometimes an hour. No swelling or redness but I can't imagine what else it would be.

My diet is mainly Protein - I eat meat (red mostly, some chicken, some pork), nuts, cheese and eggs.... my treat is watermelon... My goal is 60 -80 grams of protein a day - I also use GENEPRO - Protein Powder - 30 grams in one serving added to my coffee in the morning. I drink at least 60 ounces of Water a day, normally more...

Can you, do you get gout in different toes other than the big toe?

I've not yet gone to the doctor for it.. Thanks, Kim

I have been on the preop diet for about 3 weeks. I have had gout in the past and now with all the Protein I am having a flare up in the arch of my foot and I really am starting to ache all over. This is horrible. I heard cherries help ( fresh or dried).

Or tart cherry juice

It's possible to get gout in any joint but the most common is the big toe. I have never gotten it anywhere other than the big toe. I would get the occasional gout flareups but after surgery I kept getting them. Generally gout attacks don't last for 10 minutes. It usually peaks at night for hours and lingers for a couple days. There's usually swelling and redness. Also there is a burning sensation and can be very sensitive to touch. Even laying a bed sheet on my foot can be painful. My doctor ended up prescribing me a daily pill to reduce my uric acid. After I told her about my attacks she tested my uric acid level and it was extremely high.

Perhaps what I am experiencing is something different then... sometimes the pain seems to start in my foot directly behind those 2 toes but it usually involves those as well.I am needing to schedule my 1 year check up, I can always ask at that time... Thanks! Kim
