I bought a nice pound of cherries in the way in to work this afternoon and Tim and I enjoyed them very much ! but then , , ,all I could think of was that movie " the witches of eastwick " where the witches cast the spell in the woman causing her to regurgitate an excessive number of cherries . ,. . Have another cherry ! rather violently
cherries as you may know are supposed to be good for gout relief , , , so far no good .....
My uric acid is 7.9, my Dad has had gout, and I'm wondering about myself. My big toes feel kinda stiff, achy. But I've been so anxious about it, I wonder if I'm imagining it all. How will I know if and when it's real? Will it just hurt like crazy all of a sudden, or does it build up slowly?
i have a fever of 101.7 and my gout pain seems to be gone ???
is there a connection or is it just my luck ?
gout continues in the side of the big toe knuckle
it only hurts when i bump or walk on it
am trying celery seed and black cherry extract for it
am about to do the half teaspoon of baking soda in water too
damn it if some old fart didn't kick my gouty big toe tonight on the bus coming home !
the pain near shot me thru the roof !
guess that is what i get for having my foot out in the aisle in the first place !
i have taken Thursday off because i KNOW that i will not be able to get a sock and a shoe on my swollen foot tomorrow afternoon to go to work
so being off is a done deal !
*I love it when I get gout in my right knee/calf area.
I'm so lucky.
I know this.
I'M SO EXCITED!
i'm having a gout attack in......MY BACK! believe me, i know how lucky i am, and i am thanking the gout gods everyday.
i just recently got over being sick for a month, and some of that included spasms in my back. during that time i know that those little gout ghosts wormed their way up into the joints in my back.
and now - horribly beautiful pain!!!
can you imagine the fun i am having laying down at night?
and i always complain that nothing good ever comes my way!
shame on me!
*i am proud to report that i am, indeed, having a gouty flare up. yes!
for those of you not in the know, you can occasionally get a "flare up" in between attacks. a flare up is not nearly as wonderful as an actual attack, yet you feel lucky knowing that the gout has not forgotten about you.
i, myself, am having a flare up in the arch of my left foot - a place that gout has not kissed as of yet. it is quite special - the way that it feels as though you have sprained your foot, or stepped on something that you shouldn't. then that wave of familiarity comes back and you know that you are in for a treat.
can i be a total girl here and say how wowie dowie excited i am to have a flare up at the same time i am having my period? and some people wonder if the universe has forgotten about them...not me!
blood and uric acid....i am woman, hear me ROAR!!!!
