My friends dad has gout. His hand, sometimes a foot, swell beyond belief. He has tried almost every pain med, anti inflammatory there is. He also eats lots of cheeries, stays away from red meat, does what he is supposed to. I don't know anything about this condition. Any advice on medication he could request? How is Gout normally treated and what has worked best for you? He is in terrible pain. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
