For several days i was feeling discomfort in my feet. Both, tops,bottom,heal area,sides. I'm one that figures whatever going on, will get better. so now day 4 or 5 my feet and ancles were swollen to the Max. Extreame readness ,worse in some places such as heal. We'll my brother was visiting as at this point, a hobble-barley walk.He looked at them and started in with story of people he's known who almost lost there leg/toe. Extreame info. At this point i'm worried. Did reasearch online,called friends for home remides.I have no ins. but went to Dr. anyway. Didnt do labs to determine for sure (couldn't painaford test). This was Thur. pm - perscribed 3 meds... Zyloprim-treats high uric acid levels..Keflex-bacterial infection..and Naproxen-anti-inflammatory.. Now is Sat. Am and o what a relief from the pain. I would fill cooler w/ice/h2o and put in also topical stuff can get over counter. Just to Manage. Gotahave the internal meds. I kid u not Pain,Pain, its serious. hope this may help someone..
