Gout... have you got it?

As far as i am aware, Gout can be a disability.
I have learnt today that i "may" have gout pending blood tests. I am in a lot of pain, my foot. It is swollen and excrutiatingly painful..
i have been thinking i might not be able 2 ride if this gets much worse in time.. i am only 24 Does any1 here have it? can any1 tell me what 2 do 2 help make it better? does it mean stopping riding? it is already threatening my nursing career dream
x

The dr says he is treating it as G0UT.

Gout is horrid, my father and brother gets it. It can be controlled with diet and medication (avoid turkey and chicken).

Both my relatives had nasty attacks of it,but have hope it did clear up and went away. Really hope you feel better soon. Do a search on the net, I'm sure yuo'll find lots of helpful advice about diet etc.

I had a similar problem about 15 years ago which the doctor said he was treating as gout (was a bit horrified cos I thought it was something old men got, not 17 year old girls which I was at the time!). Foot was swollen and SO painful I couldn't bear even a sheet over it in bed. Couldn't put any weight on it either. Turned out it was tendonitis - the tendon sheath had filled with fluid so the tendon inside it had no mobility, thus causing the swelling and agony. Apparently the symptoms are similar to gout so if the gout test are negative might be worth mentioning it to your doc. With lots of physio and mega strong anti inflammatories it cleared up. Heaven knows what caused it.

Hope you sort it out soon x
