Gout attacks due to stress by Joe
I feel very strongly that stress does cause my Gout attacks sometimes!I usually can eat pretty much all the bad foods that supposedly cause Gout. But the last two times that I had a flair up I was stressing over things.
Because it seems to come on for no apparent reason. I am 57 and retired I have had flair ups and full blown Gout since I was about 37. I was a supervisor on my job and did have some stress at times but since I have retired I have started my own business.I have had some stress from time to time and I do think is has brought on the Gout attacks. Indocin seems to clear mine up. Coltracine if it gets really bad.
