Gout Ok, Ankle Bad, Bah!

ankle-specsJust a progress report on the gout since I haven’t had anything to post about…

Not much actually is going on as I have not heard of any breaking news to report on and my gout has seemingly behaved.  Although I am having major ankle issues that I do not think is gout related, but could be.

My poor left ankle on the outside where the ball is I can hear “crunching” and “popping” (uric acid crystals or arthritis?) going on as well as a lot of pain.  It has been a problem for decades really off and on but has gotten worse as I get older (yesterday was my b-day) and today I feel like an old fart, even though I’m not yet 40.

The bad part is I do not have health insurance and can not afford to see the right Doctor for my ankle problem which would include multiple visits and x-rays I’m sure, so I must deal with the pain for now.

My worry is that if the ankle continues to be bothersome it could trigger that nasty gout!  Which it has done before…

  1. Many thanks to the great post, I am sure I am not the only one of the readers that enjoy the nicely written material. Have a excellent day. I’m a professor of AP Courses, from Pennsylvania, and I am a lot more inclined to consider students of ap courses can use some help in producing like this.

  2. This is interesting, post more often!
    I never get enough info about what is gout?!
