Can anyone offer me advice on any natural products including food, supplements, vitamins, etc that help alleviate a gout flare up? I have had gout in my big toe on 3 occasions in the past year or so and just got over a rather nasty bout in my foot. It only really causes me a problem when the area is swollen and pressure is applied to it but on this occasion the top of my foot and lower leg (mainly around the shin) were very swollen which makes it very painful wearing socks or footwear.
I will be seeing my GP this week and requesting a blood test but rather than taking medication I need to find something that works for me in alleviating the problem when it arises.
