The FH has really been suffering with his gout in the wrist today and last night. I hope we have a better night's sleep tonight.
We have a dilemma, and it isn't a particularly easy one, as all the professionals that he sees seem to have slightly different opinions! We both think that it is better to cope with bursts of intense pain as he is experiencing now, whilst his overall health is kept on an even keel, rather than to add yet more long term medication to his arsenal of pills, and in doing so risk his long term health, as happened at the start of the year.
We are off to Papworth again at the end of the month, so I can see more discussions on the agenda there. Until then, we have codeine, paracetamol, hot water bottles, slings, cold compresses, the works!
Off to bed now...
