Re: Has anyone ever had gout thats lasted over two months?
I have a great aunt who has a small bit of this on one of her toes, and says she's in extreme pain... but my aunt has to deal with this on a more extreme level. Her hands are deformed, her feet, knees, etc.. Honestly, I don't know how she functions. She has been a chef, and so the use of her hands is very important to her. She has gone in for surgery just to get some of the use of her fingers back, but this is something her doctor was very hesitant to do. And apparently it was not very successful. And she can't take medication for gout, because of kidney problems.
I hope you have much better luck, especially finding something for the pain. I don't know much about gout, or attacks. I just know that it's terrible to see somebody you love suffering like that.
