By Kamya Charles from Uganda
by CHARLES KAMYA
My name is Charles. I am 46 yr old man from Kampala, Uganda. About 14 years ago, i felt some pain in my left hand fingers. It was winter season when i was in Japan. I thought this due to cold as i used bike, but after one month in winter, it began to increase in my big toe then to the ankels and then to all joints. I started to feel cold in summer even when well covered(but not fever). when pain raised to some alarming point, i went back to Uganda and consulted an orthopedic doctor. he advised me to take a test of Uric acid.
I started taking allopurinal but until now i am experiencing a number of episodes.
I feel pain all over my body including head. I am still feeling weakness. i feel muscle stiffness and feel dizziness. The pain has of recent gone to the spine.
Please help me to get rid of this disease.
I will be thankful.
