Just re gout - check you don’t have an extra bone in your foot: I had gout attacks but were in outstep of foot, not a toe or ankle , and eat pretty healthily genereally - turns out I have an extra bone in my foot which occurs in 15% or people and normally makes no impact on anything.
I also choose comfy footwear now only, lots of old man cushioning and padding .


Only applicable to those in the Forest of Dean


Extra toe backrow?

It`s a bit depressing reading some of the posts on here, when I think, I`ve got grandchildren the age some of the posters are. God help them when they do wind up the years. :lol:

So I regard myself as a basically healthy 60 year old. I exercise (properly) 3-4 times a week, 81 Kg at 178 cm so not light but not obese either (but see below). Drink a bit too much but not a soak.

BUT

Nasal and ear hairs tick
Hangovers that last 3 days (still suffering from last Friday, that was silly amount of cheap red wine, no-one to blame but myself)
Gout (mastered with colchicine, and it is only occasional, not chronic)
Dodgy knees - could do with losing weight
Harder to lose weight - have to drink less, eat less, exercise more then I used to to achieve same effect - I reckon this is because I have become far more indolent around the home and in the office and THIS IS DUE TO DODGY KNEES!!

We are not designed to be this ancient

I have debilitating gout at 33 :( I still can't walk after st paddies day

Get that sorted straight away. Get on the pills and stay on them. I am very serious, it's important. :!:

For me the kicker is the bloody wind... farting and burping like a freight train especially in the morning as the digestive system changes. Everything else I saw coming...



Really? :( I get it occasionally and have done for the past few years. Well at least I think it's gout. Severe toe/foot pain and the affected area gets hot as fudge. I've never bothered going to the docs because I can still hobble about. My old man suffers with it so assumed I'd get it one day. From your post I assume ignoring it is a bit stupid?


You need to get in diagnosed. Blood test for that. But if your dad had it chances are high. Unfortunately it will probably only get worse so get on the medication. Once you have had a bad attack you will be grateful for anything that makes the pain go away. Get a list of high purine foods and find out which ones trigger an attack and eliminate them. Oh and be prepared for loads of sh*t jokes about your Victorian Gentleman's diet etc


Damn. Knowing my luck it will be one of my favourite foods. I best get to the doctors then.

Very much so. The earlier you diagnose it and treat it the better.

AND DON'T STOP TAKING THE MEDICINE!

This is a really common mistake which I did myself. Got on top of it, watched my diet and my drinking, things settled down. 3 or 4 years down the track felt no need to take the medicine and just tappered off. Then wham! Back, and twice as bad, gout in the elbows and knees, and trust me, you DO NOT want gout in the knees... I was bed ridden for 2 weeks and limped for 5 months from one attack. Too painful to use crutches, just swinging the knee was more than I could stand, and I'd toughed out and hobbled through plenty of pain when it was just down in my ankles.

Once you've got it you have to keep taking medicine till you're 6 feet under. But if you do get on top of it you can lead a pretty normal life. Even you can have the occassional food or drink that sets it off. While I have to generally drink ciders and whatnot I can still grab the occassional stout or whitebeer which is normally a no no. It's not the end of the world.

I played my last ever, last ever game the christmas before last ... well 20 minutes of it before i popped a few ribs. I do 30 minutes stair climb at least 3 times a week even with the knees and hips ... sorry, but your arse still disappears.

In my experience , it is an excuse to be terminally grumpy at work, call any man 20 years younger than you "Son" or if you are giving them a bollocking , " Sonny Jim".
You can rant to your hearts content about how the Country and Everything else has gone to the dogs.
You can then go to the Pub, ask for a " Pint of Best, Darlin'"
and try and look down her cleavage.
You can then say to the bloke next to you waving a tenner
" Pwhaw!, Don't get many of them to the Pound!"

Sciatica.

Yes, I had an operation when I'm 28 and I'm now 38, but it's just starting to flare up and linger longer than I'd like, despite the appropriate exercises. Still, I'm in a steady weight-loss process, so hopefully that contributes to alleviating the symptoms.

That is very strange. The whole point about cider is that it has basically no purine while stouts and white beers are the worst. Doctors are quite happy recommending people to drink cider and I certainly did while my uric acid levels dropped back to normal.

My incidences of attacks dropped considerably when I stopped drinking cider and moved to lager. Don't drink too much in the way of bitter and stout but partial to a bit of craft beer and that's doesn't seem to cause a problem. Mind you when you've got the dose on your medication right and are sensible then the attacks should be almost non existent.

My gout is caused by shellfish and red wines. Don't go near them now and have learned to live without them. No longer have to take daily pill, but have a supply of Naproxen if ever I feel the onset signals. The doc said take a shock dose, then one three times a day till gout subsides....then lay off them. Seems to work ok for the last six years.

Moving slightly off piste, I am getting increasingly fed up with pillocks on here who assume I've done little with my life.

Things were very different when I was born. But I had parents who encouraged me to do everything.

We are in the process of trying to do just that with the grand-kiddiwinks.

So. M, aged 3 is playing the recorder. I'm teaching her draughts as an intro to chess.

When you get older, it's the things you learnt as a child that keep you going.

I have a unicycle and I can take her sailing.

They don't tell you this, it's inherent.

How did you get injured reffing Auld Reekie? Strains you say. There's a bloke who refs here in Oundle. He must be about 80 in looks. It's rather funny to watch him ref. He goes into slow-motion mode in the second half.

Some classics there. He was whistling from the halfway line when there was a conversion being taken after a try when he never bothered to keep up with play.

Then there was the day he fell into the scrum tunnel just as the scrummie was putting the ball in.

For those nasty ear and noise hair, waxing is the only way to go. Hurts like hell for 2 seconds (especially the noise hairs) and then it's gone for at least a month. I'm told that frequency will decrease over time: my brother, 7 years my senior, now needs it every 6 months, and he only started it 2 years ago.

First time I had it done, was when I arrived back in Jozi. Went to a barber close by, ran by Jordanian chaps, and next thing I knew, I had cotton buds in my ears and nose, which was also a bit warm. The guy carried on cutting my hair, and afterwards he just plucked the cotton buds of of my ears and nose.

I would've realised here's kak when he shouted "Allahu Akbar" before plucking them out.

Then he also waxed the hair on the tip of my ear lobes (another great thing about growing old).

I naturally shouted a series of words I wasn't even aware I knew.

My gout has hardly bothered me in years but I've been on allopurinol for 20 of those years. It's true I drink about a quarter the amount of alcohol I did when I had my first attack though.

My best man had gout and he rarely drank alcohol at all. At our wedding I think he drank a couple of glasses of shampoo throughout.

But my sympathies go to you. R was in a lot of pain. He was eating parrots eat them all like sweeties.

Plus a few other prescribed drugs.

Allopurinol is used for kidney stones as well, as you'll know. My late uncle had that. He finally had them shattered by some kind of ultra sonic treatment as they were quite small.
