    Default Re: Gout - the 'disease of kings'

    I get gout from time to time - usually in the foot. After limping badly on one foot for a few days the gout goes away from that foot and travels to the other foot so that I end up limping badly on the that other foot. People could be excused for thinking that I have forgotten which foot to limp on.

    Kings are welcome to this condition and I do not think that it is fair that us peasants should have it as well. I love spinach but nowadays I leave it alone for Popeye the Sailor Man to have. My doctor gave me a list of foot to avoid (including oysters).

    Ask your Doctor about "Prednisone" It is a corticosteroid. Has worked wonders for me on two occasions, once
    for my knee when I literally couldn't move - Doc made a home call, a rarity in this day and age - and
    2 weeks ago for toe problems.

    My doctor prescribes Diclofenac. It eases the symptoms.

    Prednisone has a few cons to it but it is useful.
    I use Naproxen which is a strong anti-inflammatory and it works wonders.
