    Hi I just wanted to let you know that my tests came back as having GOUT .
    My uric acid level was so high that it was almost off the board.He says i'll have it thr rest of my life And will always have to take meds.
    my dr. prescribed Allopurinol 300 mg 1 a day.
    After a month my knuckles were STILL bad and so sowellen so last week I went back to drs.
    He put me on Indocin .25 mg 3 a day. Don't know if its helping yet .Too soon to tell. Give it another 2 weeks. But my pain in my toe seems to be alot better now.
    Gout is heredity.My beloved mother had it so bad in here knuckles.
    Check wiyh your dr. for a uric acid blood levels. Just might be the problem. I alss have Fibromyalgia.Along with both its a killer on pain.Good luck and e-mail back.
