I know of other people our age with gout, it is not that big of a deal really. Search for anti-gout diets online and make a good of it. You should only need a prescription for the first year IF you willingly add lots of fresh fruit and veggies to your diet.

Keep a blog or paper journal of your battle and it might seem less overwhelming.

Many people with gout relive the pain in their joints with swimming and soaking in baths.

Kiss Feeling sorry for your self is understandable for a few days after that gather your strength and fight this monster holding your feet down!
