High Uric Acid

Doctor has told me I have Sky high Uric Acid, having read about Gout, the attacks I’m getting don’t seem like same thing? I get an intense itching in Feet, so intense the more I try to itch the more intense it becomes it’s so bad I’m actually screaming as nothing helps, and intensifies to such a degree I want to literally chop my foot with an axe....He put me on allopurinol but I had bad reaction and ended up in A& E and they said Stop tablets. I have low Folate and reading tells me this often reported in high Uric Acid levels...My question is has anyone experienced this intense itch described rather than usual Gout pain? ...

I have ordered some herbal Uriprinol tablets, does anyone here know if they have helped or is there a better natural product I can try to lower Uric Acid? I am stage 3 CKD so prefer natural route as prescription meds ( apart from Colchicine ) have not helped. Obviously I only use Colchicine during attack, I need a long term solution to lower Uric Acid.

I see you get B12 injections. Do you also take folic acid or folate supplements

What about vitamin B complex, this is usually recommended too on here

Post your most recent vitamin results and members can advise

Lots of links to say that folic acid or folate may help

goutdiet.org/folic-acid-gou...

Also mentioned here that B12 supplements may trigger gout (presumably because you may then need increase in other B vitamins )
