Hi, I'm having my 3rd acute gout attack since the beginning of June. I've been on Allopurinol since 2010. It has really worked well for me, with only getting very very few mild gout episodes. Well that all changed this June and it's continuing into July...
Now to my confusion. My husband says he thinks I should not stay off my feet and resting feet,right now I have it in both my feet. He feel the feet will just get stiff from all the sitting around. Is he right or wrong? Should just ignore the pain go about my day?
Secondly, should I be doing heat or cold to help me relieve some of the pain? I'm just using Tynenol now, because the prescribed med tore up my stomach...
Any and all help would be greatly appreciated... Thanks...

I am not a fan of allopurinol. It caused gout attacks twice in toes so I stay away from it. I have has better luck watching my diet and staying away from my triggers.
