been to the doctor. Prescribed medication. Hate taking it. Happens about three times a year. Usually the toe or entire foot. Usually have to stay off my feet for a week (which I also can't stand) quite literally. I bicycle 8-10 miles a day for exercise 5 days a week. Super painful during a flare up. Even with gout medication. It kicks my ass!!!! How do you deal with gout OR your arthritis?
