Just got back from the doc today. She said my uric acid level was through the roof, and that's why I'm in pain all over, and running fevers lately. And my Hashimoto's is alot worse again, so she is upping my thyroid med. I have been super tired lately again. I can't believe I have gout at my age. I'm only forty one. My grandfather and my mother had gout. But it just always seemed like a disease of older people to me. The doc had no answers for my neurological stuff, as usual. And we didn't really discuss much else. Basically, here's your pills, here's your gout diet sheet, bon voyage. But at least it does explain some of why I'm in pain all over and fevering and more fatigued than usual.
