A Pain in the Foot!
I wish this very painful problem had a prettier name, but a bout of gout does make me want to shout! from Monster cold to painful foot, I think I would rather stick with the monster cold..... I walked to the store on Tuesday, because I knew a winter storm was baring down on us, it was raining & sleeting while I was walking, so when I got home, my feet were wet & freezing, so yesterday when I was having a hard time walking, I thought I had inflammed something from my feet being frozen..... then it was about midnight last night when I was in so much pain that I remembered having this feeling once before, it was around 30 years ago, same foot ~ of course I only have aspirin in the house, the hot soak I was doing was only irritating it more ~ I finally dozed off around 8 this morning, only to awaken with seeing red if I acidently moved my foot at all..... I know gout is caused by a excess of uric acid in the joint, usually from red meat, I had a burger 2 weeks ago ~ All I know is I can't walk & I feel like someone is trying to saw my big toe off, Not Fun! so hopefully I will be back soon, with a much lovelier post!
