What is the reason for your back pain ? Back pain may be from spondylitis , arthritis of facets , disc prolapse , nerve impingement or muscles...some uncommon but not rare causes are infection & tumors. Ask your doctor for a perfect diagnosis & get the cause treated.
You can control diet and increase dose of Zyloric 100 mg up to 3 tabs a day

Welcome to Healthcaremagic,
First of all the exact cause of your backache must be find out.
So, consult a renowned orthopedic surgeon & undergo thorough investigations to arrive to a proper diagnosis.
Zyloric is a toxic drug if not used properly. So, stop Zyloric. Let the diagnosis of Gout to be confirmed.
Meanwhile you can take paracetamol with muscle relaxant and appropriate back exercise.
You correct your posture while sitting, sleeping and standing.
Do not bend yourself.

Hi, my dad's blood pressure has been up since yesterday (ranges from 182/100 to 201/100). My dad says that he feels fine regardless. He's been taking his med, but his rheumatologist doctor told me that he has edema and gout. He received a shot for his gout yesterday, which relieved his pain, but his bp is still very high. I haven't heard from my dad's cardiologist on what to do, but is there anything I can do at home to improve his bp? My dad's bp normally averages 160/90. Thanks for your help.

A few days ago, one of my toes started itching, then swelled up and turned red at the tip. Then, 3 days ago, I developed a hives like rash covering pretty much my whole body. Today, I have blisters on the affected toe and also smaller ones in the area around it. Went to the doctor and she had me get a blood test for uric acid (testing for gout, I guess). The uric acid test is in normal range - 6.1. The toe is not painful, but itches like there is no tomorrow. I am a 60-yo male, and active - I do water aerobics and walk 2+ miles. Also have been hiking recently. Any ideas?
