Gout



  • It’s a real mother-fucker!!!

    Fucking crippled today. Thankfully was able to see a doctor today for a prescription. Ruining my beer and racing day.



  • Surely port and racing with gout!



  • @Hooroo you have my sympathy.

    Mind you I haven't had it for years



  • Ha, snap man. I'm also a bit prone to gout (once every 12-24 months) and have some early arthritis from years of basketball ankle/feet injuries - the 2 seem to work together a bit.

    This lockdown is a killer because I've tripled both my wine intake and my running at the same time - so hitting the arthritis and gout gods spontaneously!

    Right now I've got the early stage tell-tale tingle in the joint, but I'm hitting it hard with over-the-counter anti inflammatories and drinking my way through the pain...



  • Big toe
    Like I stubbed it against the bed
    Feels like I want to click it but can't
    That gout?



  • Fuck absolutely all of that. The recipe thread claims it's first victim

    Don't think so. It would be throbbing . Reddish colouring. Warm to the touch. Farking painful.

    I think you may have clipped the skin when trimming your toenail? 😬

    A mate got it when he was ~19 as a young subbie. When he told us we couldn't stop laughing at the poor bloke. I'd never heard of someone his age getting it.

    I get exactly the same thing occasionally and had it last weekend! Feels like a broken/dislocated toe but I can't pop it back in.

    I just discovered last week bending it back with my hand while applying good pressure to the tendon on top released it temporarily and then after doing it a few times it was gone. Seems backward but worked, like the tendon was ceased or something.

    One of my mates got it when we were in RNZAF and we took the piss.

    I apologised to him today
