Almost ten years between gout episodes.....

by Donita
(Oklahoma)

I retired from a job I hated in 2000. I was having frequent gouty arthritis attacks, always affecting my left great toe. I took Indocin for flare-ups.

This, of course, is 2009. I had not had ONE single gout attack until a problem within the family occurred, ongoing for weeks...my gout has returned....again in my left great toe. STRESS AND GOUT ARE DEFINITELY RELATED!!!!
