Is it or can it be hereditary?
Gout & Pseudogout Q & A
I want to know the best diet for a person suffering from cronic gout attacks. I’ve been in bed unable to walk, for almost three months.I fasted for one and a half months. Still no relief.I was given steroids and placed on alluperniol. Please help.in much pain. I don’t want to go through this again.
I saw the question posed about gout and chemotherapy. I am a 54 year old woman who had breast cancer 5 years ago and was treated with chemotherapy(cytoxin and adriamycin)During this time I had a continued decline in the joints of my knees. My Dcotors say it is arthritis. I am now experiencing a numbness in my toes and also some enlargement. I also experienced an enlargement of a finger in my left hand (swollen and feels difficult to bend) No signs of an insect bite only warmth and no redness.I have some puffiness between the middle and forth fingers of both hands, occasional pain on the outside of my wrists and I am also experiencing aches in my lower hip and buttocks area. Could this be the start of gout or rhumatoid arthritis? What type of test could determine this, and is there any type of diet for gout that could help me ? I am a gingerale drinker and wondered if consuming too much could cause an increase in uric acid in my system?
Recently, I have been diagnosed with gout/arthritis in the big toe joint. When it flares up, I can hardly walk. Being that this is not constant pain, I am wondering if some of the food I take could bring on the bouts of swelling and pain. I also have a kidney condition, so I cannot take most of the medication available. Tylenol is about it.
How can it be determined that a pain in the foot is considered gout or arthritis? adding: that there could or could not be any inflammation. By knowing this how can it or any be prevented? 1.)For Gout, I know when I have pizza this gives a reaction. What’s your comments? Currently I am taking colchicine.
I am a 54 yr. old female. 10 months ago I became very ill and was hospitalized with septacemia suspected from a kidney infection. Liver enzymes were highly elevated and SED rate was very high. Subsequently had several more “septecemias”. Had persistent pain in upper left abdomine. Had to have a huge kidney stone removed (long history).Although stone removed, continue to have upper abdominal pain.(Not diagnosed) Kidney speciatist says not related to stones although CT scan shows many stones remain. Liver enzymes eventually returned to normal. Approximately 8 weeks ago , developed acute sudden pain in hip that lasted several hours. Pain left the hip and went into both elbows and knees. Now seems to have settled in left elbow and knee which are both swollen. Have deformities of fingers in both hands (osteoarthritis) with big nodules. Sometimes get excruiating pain in left big toe. Doctor says blood work is all normal. 3 different anti-inflammatories did nothing. Very high dose of Prednisone helped “somewhat” but now that dosage is tapered down, pain and swelling has returned. Waiting to see a specaialist. Doctor says she suspects a “galloping” rheumatism of some kind, butis frustrated due to normal blood results. Generally feel unwell and body temerature is very low (96.1 at times). No fever but get chills. Any thoughts on what all this could mean??
