Thanks I'll check it out.

You too SR, thanks, I'll look into that as well.

I'm sure that whatever you had that required Chemo is going to make gout look like a minor irritation but yes it does hurt. The first time I got it I of course had no meds available and that was sheer misery. Shoes and socks most definitely out, indeed I couldn't even sleep with a sheet over my foot.

BTW , some drugs have different names down here and also some are not available in Oz. I'll speak with my GP.

If I keep to a regime of celery supplement twice a day and a tablet called Mobic if I feel a twinge it is quite contained.

Again thanks for suggestions and SR whatever it was that required Chemo I do hope it all worked out.
