My 45yr old husband has just been diagnosed with severe gout in his hands, wrists, elbows and really bad in his ankles.
His gp gave him a very strong 3day course of colchicine tablets which did help, but it flared up again a few days after finishing the course.
He is now on 1 colchicine aday and naproxin 500mg 1morning and night. And he puts pain cream on the areas but it doesn't always work.
He has got an appointment to see the rheumy but it's in 4wks time.
Please could anyone share their experiences, it's really upsetting watching him wince in agony and not be able to help him.
Thankyou so very much for reading my question, angel blessings to you all
