Gout - Arthritis
I was diagnosed with gout a few years ago and as we have a family history of it, its not too surprising.
I have tablets for it but I am a devil for forgetting to take them and usually keep my co-codamol and naproxen close to reduce swelling and kill off the pain.
Flipping gone and forgotten both today haven't I and my gout has decided to attack my ankle in the left leg and the knee in my right, I am finding it really hard to walk today and have hidden up in my office.
I am not supposed to do VLCD's because of gout but the results are worth the pain I think, and I may only be on this till just into the new year but if things carry on as they are I may have to reconsider :(
I have managed so far but I am pilled up most of the time to cope, I flipping hate gout its a right sod!
When I spend most days walking a lot it really gets in the way of business. If only I had some Naproxen and co-co's with me :(
I am supposed to be dancing tonight and I really don't want to miss it so when I get in Ill be OD'ing on pain killers and anti-inflammatory s.
I'll just have to try and lie low today as walking is killing me, just been for a wee and it hurt like a bugger to get there and back :(
will the gout reduce once youve reduced your weight to say the teens? i remember from doing my massage course that its to do with uric acid and a build up and that men are more susceptable but thats it.
it must be agony for you. can you not go to the chemist or something and just get some co-codamol to tide you over til tonight?
how about a cold compress or something?
My other half sometimes suffers with Gout and I know from listening to him how painful it can be. Is there anyone near you who could pop out for some pain killers?
I know that my OH would put his leg on a chair or footstool and that a cold compress would often help so you could give that a try?
I wish you better soon!
It hit me good this morning guys. I am normally in work by now but I have contacted the boss to say I can't come in. I can't stand up, can't walk and have lower left kidney pain like I have never had in my life. I have taken 500mg of naproxen and some co-codamol(god bless them) pain has subsided a tiny bit but enough to at least lie without being in agony.
Really don't want to pack in Lipo but really shouldn't do any VLCD with gout.
I'm gonna ride it out and will probably be dosed up till I finally hit target. Can't even go to kitchen for water :( not a good day!
god you poor thing. sounds nasty. you have to do whats best for your health in the long run and i know getting weight off is important to you, could you not use the maintenance products and eat once a day instead? loss is a bit slower but at least youd be eating? what do you think?

Thats it guys I am outta here - just been for weigh in for week nine and its 21:9 so lost 4lbs
Been in agony though with gout for days and it is now spreading into my spine so I am coming off TFR and forcing myself out of Ketosis by having some carbs and some Gout remedies - berries,pineapple etc along with Allipurinol as soon as the pain stops.
As soon as the Allipurinol kicks in and the initial gouty attack subsides I am going straight back onto TFR but with some added assistance gout wise from the allipurinol.
I guess week 10 will be a gain, maybe week 11 even but by week 12 Ill be dropping again and Im not gonna be eating cakes and crisps either so the gain will be minimal.
I am on a roll and gout can get to hell if it wants to stop me - It ain't gonna!
RIP weeks 10 and 11 and bring on 12 - Ill still be hanging for two weeks and keeping an eye but Ill not be 'trimmin till this pain has gone as it is in my own words quite Exquisite !!
The Marquis de sade would adore me at the moment!
oh so sorry to hear about the horrible pain. You have done great so far and i bet in 2 weeks you will be back and lowering it even more :)
hope you get a good night's sleep once the meds kick in :)
Oh no! How annoying! Dont worry lindo we'll be looking out for your return x
