Okay, I recently had an attack come on last week and have avoided it....

I have suffered for this hell for a while and I have a few tips for you , if you're unwilling to change your diet that much. I take Tart Cherry Supplement and you can get for cheap at A bottle of 200 3500 mg tablets costs you $13.33. Take these once in the morning and once at night, this should keep the uric acid down. When my attack started over last week I would drink more water and add a cherry tablet here and there. I feel great today. Now when I was withering in pain and couldn't walk, a friend of mine suggested getting 5 mg predisone tablets. Take 3 first day, 2 next day, 1 the following day, gone. Predisone requires are prescriptions, but I went through online and got some. Allcourinol I am sure works, but I am sticking with the tart cherries for now as they are pretty harmless and very cheap. Diet change also would be good, but I am resistant to that! Good luck!
