My foot thumb has swollen by gout...i have take medical with cataflam (diclofenac) 50 mg drug...its ok now..but the swell still there...what should I do?

Takes quality time.: Many patients seem to think that the correct way to treat gout is to manage the symptoms at the time of the acute attack. The inflammation causing pain is only one characteristic of gout. The long term swelling will take a more long term, managed control of the disorder. For this you will need a physician, experienced in managing all the issues involved in effectively controlling gout. ...Read more

Ball of right foot swollen, painful. Felt tight &  couldn't bend. Doc said poss gout? 3 days later blood test level were 5.5. Cherry juice healed it.

Whether or not ...: Hyperuricemia will continue to build up uric acid deposits in your body. It can also cause kidney disease, apart from kidney stones. Allopurinol can be taken at 100mg-300mg doses quite safely by most. You are in a trap by the idea that you treat gout attacks. You do not. You stop their recurring. 90 days of Allopurinol at $10.00 is much cheaper and more effective than cherry juice (tart), . ...Read more
