Been on hydroxycarbamide since July following suspension of plebotomy. Initially my 500mg a day seemed to have no side effects but worryingly in the last monthor so i seem to be plagued with bone pains which sees to come from nowhere and severe gout attacks(knee and feet). I have been taking Allopurinol (300mg) since May. My next Haematologist consultation is not until 7th October. I suffered from gout attacks a few years before my PV diagnosis and avoid high purine foods so am aware of do's and don'ts.
I love cycling and have a golf holiday in two weeks time but have been inactive due to the above for five weeks and very depressed.
