    Like many of you on this forum I suffer from attacks of gout from time to time. As soon as I get an attack I take a dicnoflenec and usually after 3 (at 8 hour intervals )I can get back on my horse again…..! MY THEORY…..As a horse riding instructor I sometimes have to get on my clients horses. It seems that when I get “off” the horse and land a little heavily on my feet (injury prevents otherwise) it concusses my feet and sets off a gout attack.

    OK give up riding…..but seriously has anyone else come across anything like this?


    Yes – a little trauma can bring on a gout attack.  In fact, my very first attack was set off when I kicked a ball, the point of impact being the end of my big toe – but not much impact at all.  My theory is that joints that have been damaged at some time are most likely to get attacked by gout which is certainly the case for me.
