*NCR* Gout!!!
In Response To: Gout!!! ()

I think every man who survives to 75 gets gout, Jim. The usual treatment to reduce uric acid is Allopruinol. I take it every morning.

If you have a sharp pain, usually in a foot around your big toe, the usual treatment is ibuprofin. A stronger pain killer is indomethacin. I use it maybe once or twice a years. When you get your first bout with gout, I suggest seeing your MD as you'll need prescriptions for the strong stuff anyway.

Your Doc will undoubtedly recommend some lifestyle changes but they aren't too severe.

Since gout is really a kind of arthritis, you might want to start with the Johns Hopkins discussion at

I've found them to have a good introduction to the subject.
