The pain may be because of Gout ..or vitamin or calcium deficiency..You can take homoeopatic medicine Ruta 200 (4 pills) twice a day for 4-5days..
*Avoid protein rich food..pulses.. beans.. bringle..

I have minor gout (I think) in my right foot--top of foot, Achilles area, along the edge of the foot and into the heel cap. I started taking indomethacin (25 mg. 3xday) 2 days ago. How long before I should see some effects if it will alleviate the symptoms? How long should it be continued?

I have a regular history (20 years) of gout attacks, primarily in my big toe, left foot. I was getting these gout attacks about once a year and they usually lasted about a week or two after treating with ibuprofen. For the several years they have become more frequent and lasting longer. I am taking colchicine (Colcrys) but it doesn t seem to be working too well as I have a new gout attack in a new location…outer left foot joint, mid-way between my toes and my heel. Until now, I didn t know there was a joint there. It s been there for about 45 days, now getting worse. Question is….will a cortisone shot into the affected area bring me any relief? And if the swelling and redness go away for 30 days, can I start taking Allopurinol at that time? I was under the impression that I shouldn t start taking Allopurinol until I ve been gout symptom free for at least 30 days, otherwise taking Allopurinol could worsen any current gout symptoms. Please help.
