" I have experience getting gout from walking to much but when i asked my speacalist about this he said he didnt think so but i had went to an amusement park and 2 days later i had a gout flare up and also a long day of shopping the next day a gout flare up, i do feel that there is a link for some people for walking to trigger their gout "

" I have found that to much stress on any joint can cause a flare up.

I changed jobs four months ago, where I was on my feet for 50 to 60 hours a week to a office job where I mostly sit at a desk all day, and I have noticed a big diffence in the way my legs and feet feel. You can also try getting orthotics for your shoes. That has also helped me alot.

I agree with you with the Colchine. I take one pill once a day. But if I have a flair up I do not dare take more then tree a day or I will get very sick. "

" I do agree. It seems I get flares after Yoga classes. I can not for the life of me figure out what causes it as I have tried the diet thing and I ate MUCH worse proeviously with no attacks. Scince eating well and working out. I can get rid of them! "
