hi everyone,i'm 36 y.o,rn.i have been hit by gout approx.a month ago,initial attack. i woke-up with a "strain" on my rt. big toe,i just assumed this because prior to the condition i did a lot of walking for 2 days.when i went to an urgent care i was diagnosed with gout.took indocin with no relief.my pcp prescribed me with colchicine which i took for a wk (0.6mg q 4hr)then stopped and eventually offered me relief because when i thought i was ready to go back to work,it flared-up which caused me the worst pain i ever had.he put me on allopurinol 300mg qday,been taking this for 6 days now.the pain and swelling has lessened but they still bother me like when i walk or put more pressure on my affected toe.i'm scheduled to go back to work on may 12 i don't know if i can.i desperately need some advice/help on how to deal with this "debelitating"conditon......thank you
