Yes, gout and stress are related

by Juan

I'm 38, have been suffering from gout attacks for the last 10 years. I've been able to control these attacks by eliminating certain foods and drinks from my diet and mainly due to doing a lot of excercise and drinking plenty of water (last time I had a severe attack was about 2 years ago).

I now have an awful gout attack that has affected my right ankle... can't walk. I've been trying to figure out what triggered this attack, as I haven't changed my diet or lifestyle in such a way that this event should be justified. However, I have been exposed, over the past 3 to 4 weeks to many stressfull situations regarding my family's health, my job, my relationship with family members and what not, all at once.
Until now, after having read everybody's stories in this blog, I have never related gout to stress... but I couldn't agree more! What else could it be? Just the fact of knowing that stress has triggered this gout attack is comforting... Interesting to realise which angle I must tackle this from!
Thank you and good luck to all!
