The wonderful world of gout

Well had a gout flare up that lasted quite a few days. This time around it decided to hit my "good" knee. That made for a very painful few days of trying to walk. I haven't had a flare up in ages and I have been pretty good about watching what I eat and drink. I've even lost about 40 pounds since the first of the year so I was feeling pretty good about myself. That all changed when this bout of gout hit me like a ton of bricks.

Now I don't take anything for it besides ibuprofen as I'm not wanting to be stuck on pills the rest of my life. I figure to just watch my diet and keep getting exercise so that I can enjoy my life. I do know of others who take things for it but they are also ones who like their alcohol.

Do you suffer from this infliction and do you take anything for it?
