I had just gone through a gout attack and I would say that it was a severe one. I was not on bed rest, but I was staying at home. I couldn’t work for about one month and I was taking my pills
I was very excited to learn about the gout trial. This is mainly because I haven’t heard a lot about treatments for gout; it was the first time I came across something that could potentially treat gout. My condition couldn’t be any worse than it already was. I had nothing to lose. Since I enrolled, I haven’t had any flare-ups and I haven’t had any pain.
I can understand how crucial it is for the medical research companies to evolve in finding new treatments, new medicine. I think everybody is different, and that research for developing new medicine that can help a broader range of people is so important.
