Stress and gout.

by Mike
(McHenry, Illinois)

In late July 2012, I was scheduled to fly out of O'Hare to Dulles for a week long training session for my job. I arrived at O'Hare, went through all of the hassle to get through the checkpoints. while waiting to board my plane, the flight was cancelled. Not being a veteran of air travel, I didn't know what to do. I was mortified that I wasn't going to be able to make the training session in DC that was mandatory. I was booked on a 10:45 pm flight for the next day (Monday) which meant I would miss the first day of training. I took the flight landing at Dulles at 2:30 am on Tuesday. I got very little sleep before going to my class...then gout flared. I barely made it through the training but thank God I was allowed to finish the class and get my certification. This whole experience was a nightmare. I have no doubt that stress was the cause of the flare.
