When it’s in your toes do you feel it in your joints? Does it at all feel like an ingrown toenail?
I get that at the end of the day sometimes but it’s not the nail
it feels like the devil himself is ripping your body part off with a red hot poker and just the air around it makes it hurt worse.

I have bouts of regular gout, Dr. told me to avoid mushrooms and asparagus with a minimum intake of alcohol ( 3 of my favorite things in life!) I left the veggies alone but not so much the beer and Crown but haven't had a flare up since ??!!

I’ve been told I have pseudogout in my knees. Processed meats are the biggest culprit for me, anything high on nitrates. Bacon and sandwich meat make life miserable unless it’s in moderation. I’ve heard/read/found that you gotta find what foods do/don’t work for you and follow it. Lots of water intake also helps.

Absolutely! I am going to run to the store and grab a bottle or two. Eating cherries helps to, so hopefully I'll find some avaialbe as well.

When consuming fruit juices, be sure that that you are not taking on any extra sugars. Many juices may say “Natural” but they can be loaded with sugar. They will spike your A1C so if diabetes or pre-diabetes is an underlying condition, they could create other issues. If cherries work, might be better to eat real fruit than drink it.

I hope I don’t get hit with pseudo gout ... I have a case of Wright Bacon in my refrigerator.

A man's gotta do what a man's gotta do. Wild Turkey is my weakness...maybe that's why Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday...

haha my buddy works for a premium/boutique bacon/ham/sausage company. Every time I go to Colorado, or he comes down I end up with my garage fridge freezer full of pork. I have to limit my intake to once or twice a week though.

Taking a good digestive enzyme may also help. That was something else i did in my changes that led to only one minor return of gout as compared to the "I can't walk" attacks I had previously.

I am 70 years old. RA hit me at 50. The pain was constant. My legs, feet, ankles, knees, hands, wrists all in pain. Because of the pain, I sat on my butt for 17 years, until retired, so my leg muscles did not support me very well. I had developed severe knots of pain in my left leg. I got Mad at the pain, pressed hard against the knot until it finally relented. Then I discovered the bubbles in my left leg. But my right leg did not display the same way. So reasoned that the bubbles should not be in my left leg and I started to crush them. I went to bed that night and for the first time in 17 years, my left leg laid in bed, CALM, no pain. Amazing. The bubbles and crystals attach to the tendons for their energy(parasite?). Scrape them off of the tendons. The bubbles and crystals are more interested in the tendons, than the bone.
To crush the bubbles and crystals, I use the top of my fingernail to push down and away on the crepitus and pop the bubbles. try not to dig in with end of the finger. The skin will suffer, work on another areas until it heals. You might use a spoon. The bubbles are arthritis. I think the bubbles are parasites, because, when you pop the bubbles more push in behind it, to replace the bubbles, I just popped. I call my work with my fingers 'scrapping'. I can scrape in one same area for a full minute before I pop all of the bubbles in that vicinity.
The crystals are just the excrement of the bubbles. If you crush the crystals, they will be absorbed by your body and flushed out through the poop shoot. AND THE PAIN GOES AWAY!
I first starting scrapping about three years ago, it has been a continual process. The muscle redevelopment takes a long time. I can walk again and am riding a bike 8 miles a day.
My rheumatologist does not understand what I am doing, but I can walk again, so it is a good thing.
