    I am in pain right now. Stopped taking my gout meds for a few days and look what happens.
    anyone got ideas to get rid of pain asap? I tried codeine but no results.

    hi. I seem to recall reading that "alternative" health people make heavy use of cherry juice (extract, maybe?), and high dose vitamin C, maybe other antioxidants, when dealing with gout over the long haul.

    In terms of pain relief...I honestly do not know. Stronger opioids are, of course, available by prescription. Ultram seems to be prescribed a lot here, where I live, because the real opioids are getting bad press because of overdoses, diversion to the streets, etc.

    If the pain is severe, maybe a visit to the ER or urgent care? I have a friend...when her son gets hit w/ a severe migraine, a local urgent care doctor injects him with stuff, in his office (happens rarely, thank goodness). Is that an option?

    Father God, we come to You in the name of Your Beloved Son Jesus in whom You are please; and ask that Your healing power would flow to every Child of God that is in agreement with us. We take authority over gout, arthritis, migraine headaches, cancer, heart disease, kidney disease, sugar diabetes, the flu, aids, back disorders, mental illness, and every sickness and diseases; we rebuke it in the name of Jesus, and be healed in the name of Lord Jesus Christ.

    LORD you said in Exodus 15:26, "If you listen carefully to the LORD your God and do what is right in His eyes, if you pay attention to His commands and keep all his decrees, I will not bring on you any of the diseases I brought on the Egyptians, for I am the LORD, who heals you."

    Father God, we place and maintain our Faith in Jesus, and the Cross of Calvary where the victory was won and receive by Faith the promises of healing. In Jesus name - Amen.

    had a week off work due to gout but developed strained calf by trying to walk with it too far.
    sometimes problems can just overwhelm.
    I have to go to physio today and hopefully get me ready to work on Monday.

    Pure Cherry juice.

    Drink it.

    Take Tumeric.

    It will leave you.
