I have sciatica that comes and goes. Better life through chemistry (Vicoden) and lumbar injections.

Just my 2cw

Seeing as diet effects your gout I would suggest a plant based diet. Google it and you will come up with several sources. I would think with your suffering it would worth a try and it wouldn't hurt you. I have used a plant based diet similar as Pres. Clinton is on and had similar results.

Wish all the best

I was having gout attacks that crippled me beyond belief. Started taking Uloric & haven't had an attack yet. Dr will need to do a blood test for uric acid bevels before prescribing it. No side effects or problems from Uloric.

Yes, I have had this and it's awful. It's not just seafood, it's beef, alcohol, certain beans and other foods. Basically everything we enjoy.
You should see a doctor, but he is probably going to tell you that what you need is a lifestyle change. Cut the beef and seafood to once a week, alcohol intake moderate and you should notice a difference. Exercise helps also. (I swim 3-4 days a week, easy on the knees and other parts.)
Drugs just relieve the symptoms, lifestyle change should be the cure.
That said, I still get a minor flare up now and then; I take it as a sign I need to get back on track.
Good Luck, I hope you feel better soon!

I also suffer from Gout,and I know Your pain.I take Indomethacine 2 times per day and take Colcrys for flair ups.When I have a flair up I take 2 Colcrys then 1 more an hour later and it usually take care of it in 1-2 days.There has been 2 instances when I had to go to the hospital and they gave an injection that knocked the pain out totally within 30 minutes.Sorry I don't remember the name of that medication. I can tell you that beer will agrivate it, as well as scallops and turkey.Red cherries are supposed to help,but I can neither confirm nor dispell this theory.

My gout was due to too much Splenda in my diet, switched back to Sweet N Low and the gout went away. Check you diet, has anything changed during the time the gout has spiked up.

Does Drinking Beer Cause Gout?

I've been taking 300mg of Alopurinol for about 10 years. Used to have flare ups about once a year. Had a uric acid test done where you pee in a jug for 24 hours and they checked my uric acid. I have not had a problem since. No change in diet or lifestyle.

in addition to a low protein diet as stated above.
drink raw apple cider vinegar(one tsp in a qt of water once a day and/or sour cherry juice) it is said to help your body flush out the uric acid.
google "gout and apple cider vinegar".

Health care is in food.
Sick care is in medicine.

I found out that MSG is the main cause of my gout. It took year to find this out, every time we had dinner at a certain Chinese restaurant I had flair ups did some checking on the web and found MSG can cause many problems.
