How To Relieve Pain From Gout: Introduction from GoutPal
“How To Relieve Pain From Gout” is the first project in GoutPal’s personal gout support service. I am indebted to Graeme Austin for volunteering to test drive GoutPal Membership, AKA How To Treat Gout. This project page summarizes public and private correspondence.
Graeme’s project continues…
How To Relieve Pain From Gout: Purpose
The reason for my project to learn how to relieve pain from gout is:
GoutPal is run solely by Keith Taylor. I acknowledge that my volumes of gout information can make decision making difficult. I hope this personal support service will help me make my gout guidelines clearer.
What I’m looking for from either GoutPal or you Keith is some simple and concise gout pain management/treatment information that I can put into place, without having to read volumes of material to make a decision… and I’d much prefer to use natural remedies or supplements to do this, however I’m not sure if any of these natural options work fast enough or work at all.
What can I expect from Gout Relief?
We have agreed to focus on immediate gout pain relief for this project, therefore my expectation is to know:
If I were in an acute gout attack mode now… what would be the best solution to rapidly reduce my pain within a few hours?
How To Relieve Pain From Gout: Medicines
Between gout drugs, herbs for gout, and non-medicine ways to relieve gout, I prefer pharmaceutical or non-medicine.
How To Choose Remedies to Relieve Pain From Gout
I was prescribed Colchicine way back in 2003/4 and it upset my stomach and bowels big time. I just did not want to take that drug, so I didn’t. So, I suffered the attacks as best I could using natural therapies. I felt there must be a better solution out there, but after 10 years to my astonishment, nothing much has changed. I battled through my first acute attack this year over a 3 week period, but when I got the second acute attack only a month later, I simply couldn’t endure the pain anymore, so I resorted to the drugs described below.
I will use the comments to ask about other choices for gout pain remedies if I think it is relevant to helping my pain management plan.
My Treatments To Relieve Pain From Gout
I was given Prednisolone for 2 weeks, which has now passed and I now take a Colchicine twice daily [1 in the morning and 1 in the evening].
How I Relieved My Pain From Gout
I will use the comments to discuss how my chosen gout treatments have cured my gout pain symptoms. GoutPal will summarize my progress here, replacing comments as appropriate.
How To Relieve The Source Of Pain From Gout
During the preparation for this How To Relieve Pain From Gout project, I agreed with Keith that I required “Overdue help with uric acid control, to prevent gout returning.”
That will be the purpose of my second gout support project. Then Keith will start a new gout diet project if I still require “Optional help with gout diet planning.”
How To Relieve Pain From Gout: Summary from GoutPal
I have summarized public comments and private correspondence to prepare the text above on Graeme’s behalf. Any inaccuracies are entirely down to me, and I would ask that Graeme notes any changes required in the comments below, by private message, or in the “burning questions” box in the GoutPal Membership profile.
Graeme and I will add comments below in order to allow Graeme to be confident he can control acute gout attacks.
Where possible, comments and questions should be separated so that each comment covers a single point.
