    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!

    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...
