gout recovery toe
So as title states, am 3 weeks out of my gout attack and my big toe still hurts when i flex it upward or downward, now i can run again and everything, but my toe still hurts.
How much time will it take till the pain is all gone. 1 mnth , 3 mnth a year?
I also suffer from gout and in my experience it really depends on how quickly you managed to catch the gout in the first place. When I had my first attack I didn;t know what it was and I have to tell you it still hurt even to swim with for 2-3 months.
My tips for getting the crystals gone are;
1) Water, water and more water! statying properly hydrated will aid your recovery
2) Avoid alcohol (all of it not just the yeasty beer)
3) Montmorency Concentrated Cherry Juice - It's expensive but it's high alkaline content is apparently good at combating the uric acid levels and ultimately the crystals that cause the pain. (well it seems to help me)
I am not a health professional just suffered for a longtime and the above is what I have learnt. Frustratingly I'm not over weight and don't drink beer just bad genetics!
My middle name is William, there is a commonality here. People called WIlliam get gout! LOL!
Echo the Montmorency cherry juice, stick it in your Nuun bottle when you go for a run.
Er, how long till it's gone? Er, mine never does, it's always there to a greater or lesser degree. Usually just a niggle in the background though. Last big attack was 2009, lasted 8 weeks. When it's niggling, it hurts other joints too, fingers, wrists mainly and sometimes neck.and ankle. No idea why.
FWIW, spinach sets it off in me.
finally pain is 98% gone , am staying away from food that increases chance of gout, drinking tons of h2o . havnt tried cherry juice, will look into it.
anyways thanks for the heads up brother williams lol
