    I have read about the cherry extract as a treatment and may give it a try. I have seen the capsule/tablet but not liquid. Hey Shootbrownelk where did you get it- pharmacy, grocery or health food store? Thanks
    I got it on-line. I forget the place. I'll look it up. I bought a case, it lasts forever. I mix about a shot glass of the extract with 7-up.

    It sucks. A fan blowing on it wants to make you scream. I cut beer out completely and cut the soda way down too

    My Dr told me it is mostly inherited, but diet can play a big factor. In my case, don't really know as no one in my family has it. I don't eat a lot of red meat and don't drink much (12 pac of MGD lasts me a month!). I also havn't had an attack in 5 years or so. You are right tho...it is really painful.

    I started getting gout in high school and have been battling it every since. I used to be able to combat it with regulating my diet but am looking at getting on allipurinol full time. I eat lots and lots of poultry and when I decide to cheat I cannot mix a juicy med-rare rib eye with an ice cold refreshing beer! Anything with oats seams to instantly set off a flare up and also asparagus! It seems to always hit me when I have a hunting trip planned or a vacation. I would not wish this on my worst enemy! Those of you who suffer from gout would probably agree.

    Don't battle it, get your doctor to put you on "Allipurinol" A.S.A.P. and buy some cherry extract (google it) I haven't had a flare-up in 20 years. Good luck to you Legend.

    Do you notice many side effects?

    Mt. the last supply I got was from Kewaskum Frozen Foods in Kewaskum,Wisconsin. They have a website, it's cherry extract liquid.

    Messed up my AZ Antelope hunt...

    had they had a tag return option I probably would have... I called/tried.

    I had a quick recovery, but still... missed the 1st week/opener...

    from what I've gathered.... stress, diet, overweight, etc... esp pork...
