Gout non stop for a year now

I have had gout for a full year now with NO relief my Uric acid level is 10.5...the first Dr I saw took crystals from my big toe and said he had never seen so many crystals in any other patient.....so why are NO gout meds working for me

I have been to several Drs..all specialists...

Every Dr says "this is so unusual" I am so frustrated hearing this.

I have been on prednisone and had medpacks and IV doses of prednisone... Still no relief and still so swollen cannot wear a shoe, Drs are confused as why the steroids are not helping the swelling.

I have tried allupurinol, colchicine, indocin, gabapentin.. Humira and anakinra shots...NOTHING has worked. they tried Keflex thinking maybe i had an infection... No change at all Im at my wits end.

I have been to podiatrists, orthopedic dr, rheumatoligists...I have been from NH to Boston....Mass. General is where Ive been for 2 mths.... They are bewildered and I'm in terrible pain working everyday ....
I feel they are looking in the wrong place but they are the Drs and make the decisions.
My wife is afraid this is all being caused by something else going on in my body but without Drs agreeing and doing other tests I do not know what to do.

Any ideas on what I can try next is greatly appreciated....or if anyone has had a similar experience please share with me.

Thankyou !

Gout for a year non stop
by: Ron

Hey friend of mine had me try this natural capsules of hydrangea 325 mg. Safflowers herbal dietary supplement 420 mg. They came from nature's sunshine products Incorporated Spanish Fork, UT 84660 1-800-223-8225
I don't know if they'll work for you but it might be worth a try.

Gout and candida
by: tkdwarrior

My hollistic doctor determinated what is causing me high levels of uric acid is the bad flora in my stomach, so she gave diet in which I have to avoid: refined sugars, carbohydrates and alcohol. I got a tell you guys that works really really good on me, but I still suffer of some "light pain" and I decided to make a research about how gout and stress/anger are related, and found this page in wich I confirmed my theory that stress is another factor what triggers gout attacks. Now I have to learn how to manage my stress/anger. keep this page going on, it is great source of information. take care.

Natural have best for me
by: nick c.

As with everyone who suffer from gout and any other illness... I feel sorry and would love to send a strong message that I believe 100% and have many signs and experiences that would love to share with everyone but this is not easy to do here and so I will leave my email address for any one who want to connect and that way we can network better personally...

I become 100% vegan back in 1998... it helped a lot in regard to gout... but I did not stick to what I knew was best for me and so along the way I had to pay with gout attacks...

I am now 100% vegan but not 100% stress free so last month after many years I had another strong gout attack that is now at the end...

My observation is that gout come up from 70% of our diet and 30% from stress ... and I call it a deadly combination...

For the cancer part.. yes, some doctors may say it is coming from some type of cancer as multiple myeloma... but again.. that is just what they say according to what they know...

Please look into natural health remedies.. they helped me be strong, alive and healthy in many ways and for many, many years already...

hope it helps.

best for everything

Gout for a year now
by: Douglas

Thank you for your suggestions and comments. It is crazy how many people are suffering from gout, I had no idea . We have tried the Braggs ....black cherry juice, cherry pills from the natural store... I too took tramadol and now I'm on verapamil... Neither gave me any relief. I am seeing an internal medicine Dr this week and I am requesting a bunch of tests to be done for kidney, liver functions.... I am getting nervous that there is an underlining issue ...online is great because there is so much info, but it's scary too...my 10.5 uric acid .... When searching on line shows up that it's a sign of certain cancers.... I am trying to stay unstressed as I do believe stress makes it worse.... I just need things ruled out so I can continue to try and get better. Thankyou please keep the comments coming !!

As you know, I took the choice to cure and take care of my health naturally and I will continue to do so till I am able to do it and as I say above, my choice is to find out what is the true cause of ill health and do something naturally to make sure that no illness or gout never show up again... It worked for me for the last 26 years or so since I chose this avenue since when doctors told me that I could end up in a wheel chair after the accident I had in 1987, so I still stick to that way of living, it have been working since then and we'll just have to wait and see in the future if this can be accomplished 100%

Ok, let you go now, we chat again soon and perhaps by phone so I do not hav to write so much... hhahhaha by the way, check this link out, http://5d1a8hghnfj0fk82qn3n81tm3y.hop.clickbank.net/?tid=GA

My sister concern 5
by: nick c.

I have been successful to stay gout pain free for a long time as you already know, but sometime I got cut in the wrong 70/30% trap and so I must pay the price BUT I thank God that I am able to pay the price as I do and not worse.

Once I can master teh deadly combination of the above two deadly combination issues, there will be no more gout attacks for me haha :-)

Anyway, I wanted to say thanks for thinking of me and sending any remedies my way, and with that excuse I had a chance to enlighten you on some things that I have done and some stuff that I know about the gout issue...

My foot is getting back to normal healthy one... the swelling is 98% down, teh color of my foot skin is back to normal (no more red or tan), I can walk almost with out any pain at all and if there is pain, it is not from the swelling (there is no more) but the pain come from what I call it ?the healing reaction pain? meaning that this pain must be there since it is healing, but no major issues and that is great news.

The gout pain and swelling was relieved naturally and yes, it took a long time then what others may say it is normal... but I rather go this route then taking anything to suppress it or cover it up... and since after the past gout attacks in the last 17 years, I truly found the main reason why the flare ups and the unbearable pain show up... my job is to make certain that those two damaging issues do NOT get together at all haha :-)

By the way... I know people who took allopurinol, (this is a popular drug that is usually given to people by their doctor who has gout together with some other medications) the drug that I took 15 years a go that almost killed me, some people took that drug ONCE and never had to take it again since they never had gout again... then I know people who is taking the same drug almost every day for years and they claim that they do not get gout flare ups... but again, it is a personal choice to take medications or doing anything else.

by: Anonymous

Other then that, in my humble and experienced opinion, there is no other sure solution... except taking medication or supplements sold in health food stores and other places to suppress or hide the condition.

I choose to do it naturally as you already know... it worked very well in the past and I trust it will work in the future and as I already told you, it worked this time as well and if it is a little prolonged is because of my mistake and stupidity of not following directions as I should have ...

Can you imagine, the fourth day of the full swelling and painful gout situation I went out for 3 days in arrow to consume two bunches of spinach each day.. That was completely wrong, but I stupidly did it, what can you do, I forgot till I found out the pain was not going away as before and went to check some old info about foods I could eat or not..

Usually when the gout attacks have shown up in the past, there was only two reasons why it show up constantly... and lucky for us who suffer from gout, those two reasons will be showing up at the same time...

To explain it to you better, to much of the wrong food (diet) and lots of the wrong stress... so when you combine the wrong food with high purine content and stress... that is a deadly formula that I MUST avoid to achieve 100% free gout pain lifestyle haha :-) The deadly formula consist of 70% of wrong food and 30% of wrong stress that sometime it is not easy to avoid no matter how much we watch from it.

Subject: RE: GOUT??

Thanks for the gout info that you found at the health food store Fran... I am aware that everyone have something that may work for curing or alleviating gout pain...

I do have lots of info, books and list of things that people claim it works and many of them really do ... but as you can read below (and next time we get together, I can show some books and other info that I gathered along the way)... you will find out that nothing is really true or nothing worked for everyone the same way except when people have two main issues that I discovered while I had the many gout attacks in the last 17 years...

-There is no cure for gout per se...- gout is a condition that once triggered it will never go away BECAUSE it is in people system and it was there all the time since birth and it just happen to show up when triggered by any or multiple circumstances that it would take a year for me to explain here... so this should be enough for you to know at this time haha:-) and this is the truth as I know so far..

I may never have said this to you before, but years a go (back in 1998) I found out that my body (system) produce way to much uric acid (the stuff that make the swelling and produce the unbearable pain in the foot or other joints) and some how the body extract much less by the way of urine and stool, so the excess of this accumulated uric acid produce the gout symptom.

The only solution that I know for sure and so far is to stay away from foods that have high content of purine and that include bread made with yeast in it and you know that sometime is impossible for me to resist not eating the delicious Italian bread, correct?... but I must stay away for a while as I did for many years before and so staying away from bread with yeast and staying away from some other foods that I know they are high in purine contents, I will be 70% ahead of the game and if I figure a way to eliminate much of the stressful situations that come along life, I could eliminate the other 30% and that would be a miracle haha :-).

Natural renmedies that work..
by: Anonymous

Hey there, here is me again, could not stop my self from sharing this email I received from a friend... hope this information will assist you and others in your quest to find a solution to gout pain.

Hi Nick,
Hi Nick,

If you are seriously looking for a natural way to eliminate
the pain and frustration caused by gout, look no further.
You have tried the mainstream medicines and your gout keeps
coming back . . . I know it's frustrating, you followed
the doctors orders, you took the prescribed medicine and
the sudden crippling pain and inflammation keeps attacking
you time and time again. Know this need not be!

According to the National Health Institutes of Science
(NHIS), more than 74% of Americans are choosing natural
alternatives to drugs and there is good reason for it.

The idea behind all pharmaceutical drugs comes from the
fact that our planet is full of plants that have cured
mankind's woes since creation.

Scientists that work for mega corporations know this and
try to isolate their medicinal properties so they can
synthetically mirror them to file more patents. The big
catch is, the synthetic copy of the natural medicines do
not communicate with the genetic language of the body like
the original version made by Mother Nature.

These knock off remedies are responsible for literally
hundreds of thousands of deaths every year, even when
"properly" prescribed.

Furthermore. the synthetic pain killers used for gout pain
are knock offs of opiates produced by your body and found
in nature, in fact honestly opium is safer than any of
these pain blockers manufactured by Big Pharma . . . I'm
not suggesting you take any opiates either but the truth is
there are natural alternatives that I can I guarantee will
solve your gout attack problem.

The whole philosophy of taking drugs to temporarily block
your pain was never meant for long term use. The irony is
your gout is triggered from your kidneys' inability to
eliminate certain metabolic acid wastes that build up as
hardened, sharp uric crystals in your joints. Ignore this
build up by only blocking your pain and you will wind up
with permanent joint damage from gouty arthritis.

Your body is sending pain signals in an attempt to tell you
it needs help. You can help your body heal itself by using
natural remedies to eliminate the root cause.
[this is where there is a link to book my friend promote] please email me if interested... thanks

Yours for excellent health,
nick c.

gout forever
by: Johanne

Hi there,

I have been suffering from gout since childhood since both my parents had it.
So I have a very long story of pain, crisis and all sorts of ways to try to live with this condition.

My response to you is EDUCATE yourself.
I took prednisone for a year and I got way worst!
Not at first but after a while, side effects of this powerful drug were problematic.
Check on the web and you will see all the side effects of it, wich includes, water retention, swelling, affects the muscles, etc...

After stoping it, my feet improved rapidly.

This is my experience. I have been on allopurinol for the last 15 years, once a day.
Since it is better to avoid having a crise alltogether, my best advice is to respect the strict food regiment for gout AND no pressure on the feet, that means choose physical activity that is easy on the feet. I do swimming, walking and horse back riding.
I gave up drinking any alcool a long time ago and I try to live a stressfree life.
The choice of shoe is very important to me. I put a little more money to make sure I am comfortable.
After all, our feet cary the rest of our body so they are worth it.

I have also tried the apple cidar recipe found on this site and it helps me but not when a crisis happens.

Hope this brings some valuable knowledge to you and good luck.

Gout non stop for a year now
by: Terri

Have you tried the Bragg brand apple cider vinegar? Buy it and put 2 Tablespoons in 8 oz of water and drink it upon arising every day in the a.m. Drink 1/2 of your body weight in weight, if you weight 220, then drink 110 oz of water per day. APPLE CIDER VINEGAR, WATER, FRESH FRUITS AND VEGETABLES...NO BEEF, NO BEER/LIQUOR, NO SHELLFISH, NO YEAST (CHECK EVERYTHING TO SEE IF IT'S IN THE INGREDIENTS), PORTION CONTROL, EXERCISE, WEIGHT LOSS (FIND AND SEE A REGISTERED DIETITIAN TO PUT YOU ON A CALORIE DIET). BREATHE PROPERLY (INHALE COUNTING TO FIVE, HOLD IT TO A COUNT OF FIVE, THEN EXHALE TO A COUNT OF FIVE) WHEN YOU WAKE UP AND AT BEDTIME AND A FEW TIMES DURING THE DAY. MAKE SURE THE WATER YOU DRINK IS NOT ACIDIC. BUY LITMUS PAPER AND CHECK THINGS--YOUR URINE AND WATER AMONG SEVERAL THINGS. I take Indocin and Tramadol for the pain and swelling. WHen I feel a gout attack coming on I will take an Indocin. Sometimes that stops it. TRY TO BE AS STRESS FREE AS POSSIBLE (I KNOW THIS PART IS NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE...BUT TRY TO?)

Hope that helps a little....Take care. Terri (my first gout attack occurred jan 15, 2011 and I'm trying to lose 60-80 lbs (working out with a trainer 12 weeks now--once a week she comes and gives me a new routine; walking the treadmill at the gym; i've lost 12 lbs...lost 2 more last week. it took a while to put on and it will take a while to take off....Excess uric acid is stored in fat and I think when you are burning fat that the uric acid is released in the blood stream. UGH.....GOUT- VERY PAINFUL AND VERY HARD TO TAME! I WON'T GO ON PRESCRIPTION GOUT MEDS...I will do it my way!

There is help...
by: nick c.

Sure feel sorry for you since I know what is to have pain from gout... I had many attacks since 1987 and I am just recovering from the last one that started July 12-2011.

I have suffered on and off with gout since 1987... but what happen in 1997 the last attack when I consulted many doctors since it was lasting to long... (they suspected to be cancer, multiple myeloma) have been a blessing from God.

As I say above I feel sorry for you... but I also hope you read this post and so you know that there is hope as long as you can take control of your present situation with COURAGE and lots of FAITH.

The gout attack that I am recovering from, have come from my stupidity and willingness to risk since I eat many foods that I knew was a no, no... so now I am paying the price but it is almost gone and this time will do a better job staying away from what I know I should haha 

In 1997 I was almost dead and that as not from the gout but from medications I was receiving from the doctors (the same as you are taking right now).. and when I found out that the doctors I was seen they did not had a clue of what was the cause, I was blessed to learn what I could do naturally and by my self...

That put an end to the gout pain... plus, for years I have enjoyed life with out pain and just for the record, it is since then that I do not see a doctor in that regard... so this should say something and hope you do the same.

I do not mind being contacted in this regard, I am an avid advocate for natural remedies and wonderful health, if you feel I may assist you to alleviate or eliminate the gout pain you have experiencing for a year by sharing what I know about it... please contact me at nickcwellness@gmail.com

I will not sale you or anyone anything... but after you know what I did, how I did it, how I used and you are interested, I can share with you the source where you can buy them (most of them are at the grocery store and health food store) but some reports must be purchased, but it will be your choice and just for the record, the only one I will suggest is less then $40...

I will not suggest it here because I do not want to come across as I want to sale anything... but I love to assist you and others and hope you contact me and I can share what I know and what I have researched so far.

With this I leave you and hope this find you doing much better and have faith that soon you will be pain free.

in great health
nick c.

my thoughts are with you
by: Anonymous

My thoughts are with you. I recently had a 40 day gout attack and it was brutal, so you've got me beat. My Doctor switched me from ProBenecid and Naproxen to a temp dose of prednisone and permanent to allupurinol and colchicine (for 6-months). I'm doing better now and gout swelling is almost gone. Don't give up and keep advocating your case with your Doc.
