Those Hyrox thingy worked for me with side effects of Uticaria, and hair loss. BUT I RATHER suffer the few side effects than the pains had for over 20 years. I was treated for gout, I was taking the gout tablets and still have terrible pains and swellings in my fingers, knee wrist ankles and headaches. so i refuse to take them as they were not working.
