I feel for you Forkz. I had gout awhile back in my toe. Extremely painful. They say cut down on beer, alcohol, soda, red meat and seafood. I did that and had a slight recurrence so now I take Allopurinol daily, and so far that has kept it in check, although the Doc says my purines are still higher than they should be. I hope you get by it quickly.

Ask the Doc about Colchicine. If you feel an attack coming on, it will head it off. It's not for everyday use though.

They will have you do a lifestyle change aka food diet a list of foods that are no-no, foods that should be limited, foods that help with gout along with drinking 8 - 8oz calls of water per day if your kidneys can handle it to flush the uric acid out of body. Sorry but alcohol and surgery drinks are gone. Then it's OTC( NSIADS) pain relievers or prescription strength NSIADS including steroids and colchicine.
