: Thank you Colin for your kind thoughts. In fact it has effected the whole of my right ankle. If you have ever suffered for Gout you have my deepest sympathy, it is so painful. I have been unable to stand or walk. Apparently the main reason in my case, not enough water and stay off the read meat.
: I was so looking forward to be at Chichester luncheon yesterday.
I fully sympathesise - it's the most dreadful and debilitating pain, and limits everything you do - it's too much uric acid in the system and nothing to do with red wine. I had my first attack in 1981 - the day i was promoted to Lieutenant Colonel so the whole battalion fell about with laughter at the coincidence. I've been on an Allopurinol tablet (300mg a day) ever since and have never had another attack. Mind you, depends on what other drugs you are taking?
