    I have suffered from gout on

    and off since April 2012. It was in my foot. I had it in my right hand in July 2013, and again now in my foot in August and September 2014. The pain is awful. I am going to tell my doctor that over the counter painkillers don't do the job. The pain makes me very depressed...

    Nasty Gout

    Gout is just damn right nasty illness there is no point to it what so ever, it's just all pain around your joints nothing more. I have chronic gout due to kidney disease, it's a pain in the arse!
