Unusual Hip Gout
March 11, 2010 in Gout Cures Forum
I am a female my weight now is 105 lbs, I have always fought a low body weight and ate any and everything to keep weight on. I ate canned sardines and oysters; I love liverwurst!!
5 years ago I had severe pain in my hip for over a year (to the point of being disabled to work) and finally convinced my doctor to test my uric acid since gout runs in my family He argued that gout does not happen in the hip. (11.6 was the outcome).
My history is of being a commercial fishing captain where I sit in a chair with my feet propped out the window and my but being to lowest center of gravity.
- How often does gout occur in only the hip?
- When it lasted as long as it did is there anything to help my hip (I rarely have flareups of gout but have constsnt pain from the prolonged gout)? I can not afford the MIR etc.. my doctor wants me to have.
- How can I gain weight back?
Thank you very much for your time, I know this has been a long letter,
