Week 008 – Day 045
I woke at 4am this morning…. in great pain. I had been having a Gout attack in my right foot… about half strength (which hurts enough). Today my right foot is fine, but my left ankle is fully engaged in a Gout attack…. and I am at hospital levels of pain. Taking Indomethacin on an empty stomach means I will have great stomach pain as well, but it is my only option right now, as any anti-oxidants I can take have calories. Luckily Church doesn’t begin until 12:30pm today.
It is 12pm now and I have managed (with blessings from Him, as I prayed for intervention) to get the pain under control. I can now walk again and go to Church. I must ask about my uric acid levels and see what is causing them to be high in my assigned diet. I have a feeling it is the sugars in the drinks and bars.
