GUEST,Tim Playing Guitar with Gout (36) RE: Playing Guitar with Gout 24 May 08


Hi,
Got my first attack in 1990 when I was 36. on the very day I was to start my own local radio show. What a P*** the doctor said I had sprained my ankle and sent me away with pain killers which did nothing. It was eventually diagnosed about 10 years later, I suppose I knew really because my dad had it. Always gets in my ankle joints. Just got over a bout which has been with me of and on for about a fortnight, unusual that, it usualy just comes I take 2 Indometacin to get rid of the pain, then as they wear off I take another two. Until the pain goes, and then I stop. Supposed to take 1 tab 3 times a day with food but that just dont work. Made the mistake of coming clean with the doc about my drinking, 1 bottle of red wine a day. Thats brought up evertime I go to see him now, no matter what for. Apparently doctors assume you are lying and always double the amount of alchohol you declare, charming. But I think I will have to adjust my alchohol, it was interesting that on of you recommends European beers I might try them instead. Playing the guitar with Gout? Got no choice.
Tim.
