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…
