Gout from seperation stress, loss of job, money

Age - mid 30.


Never had any health issues. Never taken any medication. However, approx 40 days after a horrible separation (which also sent me bankrupt - lost job), gout appeared one night.

The weight of a bed-sheet was unbearable on the toe.


Was drinking heavily that last month leading up to yes - and - overdoing protein (particularly canned tuna).

However, i believe without the stress of finances/seperation would not have got gout. Then after anti-inflammatories for a week (didnt fully go away) - was prescribed oral steroids for 3 days, then the haywire started.

Complete adverse reaction to the steroids (in mind and body) - small rash on arm (not the big problem) however: started acting erratically one night walking in circles staring at mirror undressed - WEIRD.

Do NOT MESS with steroids - these doctors only see you for a short moment and just prescribe something, HOWEVER, these things can have insane side-effects.

Now on sleeping tablets (from doctor), as resulted mania-like talking/processing of situation - WTF.

Stress can break down your whole system, i believe it caused my Gout at age mid-30.
