    Angry The Hits Just Keep Comin'!

    So for those of you who were enjoying my onslaught of misery here https://www.tetongravity.com/forums/s...ad.php?t=34725 , it just got even more fucked.

    Turns out I don't have a broken foot. I have gout. I am 28 and I have a disease that I thought was reserved for old ladies with goiters and diapers. It's a life-long arthretic condition that can usually be controlled by lessening the body's production of uric acid. The kicker? Gout is often the byproduct of people who drink too much or eat too much red meat. I don't eat red meat and I quit drinking. This is the thank you, apparently.

    To all of you who thought I was cool for going sober: You're dead wrong. I am the gout man. I have gout. I am gout. Gout is me.

    Fuck it. I'm going to eat a double cheese burger, rare, then I'm going drinking Rev-style and I'll show this gout who his daddy is!

    The real question is: do chicks dig gout?

    Bacchus has had his revenge. Perhaps he'll lay off the Norns now.

    didnt you joke about gout in the basin lot telling me about all your feet/toe probs?

    any way to fight this?
    aside from killing it with wisky that is.

    oh and be careful, as I learned the hard way, when you go on the wagon for a while, then go out and drink like you used to, you will get blackout walking fucked up.

    I've had the South American flu all week, drank some Jameson last night, feeling better today. Coincidence?

    And you might want to reconsider that double cheese rare. This is ground beef we're talking about.

    Seriously though, I know things will turn around soon. I've had bad runs like that in the past. They always seem to turn around for the better. In the meantime...uhhhh...enjoy the ride.

    My Grandpa had gout. Blamed it on Port and red meat (he was a butcher). Hope you can keep that uric acid down (???)

    Heh. I saw Katherine this morning and she blamed you for the beer bonging on Saturday. It was pretty funny.

    She can blame whoever she wants, but she is the one who told me to go get it from my house.

    But seriously, Get better so that I have someone to ski with this winter.

    I've had a couple of gout attacks, although I don't have a chronic case and haven't had it for a few years. Drink lots of water, that will help you piss out the uric acid. Get Indocin, which works wonders - at the cost (for me at least) of feeling literally like I had been stabbed in the stomach.Others report no side efeects from Indocin, so I dunno. Good luck with it, it can be managed.

    From WebMD

    Gout was once thought to be due to drinking too much alcohol and eating too many rich foods. Although eating certain foods and drinking alcohol may trigger a rise in the level of uric acid in the body, these habits may not by themselves cause gout. Gout is most often caused by an overproduction of uric acid (due to metabolism problems) or decreased elimination of uric acid by the kidneys.


    Maybe get the thyroid checked out?

    Edit: Since my computer crashed my sound hasn't been working. With the release of Red v Blue Episode 60 I have been shit out of luck.

    Since the original edit I have also had my lunch interupted by bible thumpers.

    As Sublime just pasted, I dont think drinking is always the cause.
    I have a very good friend that got it and he rarely drinks.

    So I am safe for now, especially since I'm on the wagon for a fortnight

    That sounds like one hell of a misdiagnosis.

    Interesting, from the Web MD definition it could even be genetic. Either way it's a bummer.

    Clearly, your dining should include snaquettes of the highest order, despite the hairs in the teeth.

    And you'll have to stop rubbing kaopectate on your knob.

    My old boss had it and he's a good mormon - he never drinks and never has. He said whatever medication they put him on worked.

    Bummer though.
