For anyone passing by

I don't know if u still follow this post. I have the same story now for 7 weeks. Had swollen knee and sciatica at the same time. Then my right foot started to feel gout pain. Now me right leg/knee/foot are ok. But instantly my left foot started to swollen and its very painful. I feel some kind of discomfort on left hip but its not anything close of what i felt b4 on my right side.
Icant use antiinflammatories pills cuz of allergies. I'm doing Chinese needless therapy and its helping but it needs at least 5 settings to feel better.

My Story.........
by: Terri

Sciatic pain begins in the buttock (mid cheek). It can be relieved by a partner or massage therapist pushing their elbow into the fatty middle part up and down on the muscle. It's caused by the muscles being overly tight and pushing on the sciatic nerve. The big toe is not related to it (from my knowledge of the body). I'm a massage therapist. I have gout also. I've had sciatic pain too. Gout pain is nowhere as bad as sciatic pain and it's in the joints (gout). Sciatic pain can start in the buttocks and travel down the leg and be painful and uncomfortable so you can't rest no matter what position you are in. Gout--read all about it here on Peter's website and you will know. More than doctor's too! I've heard horror stories where the doctors have no clue...scary stuff. I diagnosed my gout myself and then went to the dr. Indocin and tramadol help the pain/swelling. I take Bragg apple cider vinegar 2 tablespoons with 8 oz water every morning when I wake up. I drink half my weight in ounces of water -- daily.

Good luck to you. take care.

get a uric acid blood test
by: Anonymous

I'd suggest that you go to a Dr and get a uric acid blood test. Normal range is up to 8.5, but if you are a gout sufferer, then any reading over 6 could be problematic for your gout.
