how long gout attack lasts
There is no real way to answer your question with any certainty. Gout is caused by an excessive buildup of uric acid in your body. The quicker you can neutralize your system, the quicker the attack will disappear. Drink as much water as you can, some people take a couple of tablespoons of baking soda in a glass of water to neutralize the system, also tart cherries or concentrate work well.
Good Luck,
Steve

thanks for reply.
my dad has swollen big toe, which is red & very painful. his uric acid level is 4. he cannot walk properly n is limping. the doctors say it is gout , he has this condition since 3 months...... we r very worried
gout attacks can last up to 6 weeks i know i have chronic gout stage 3 .. a normal uric acid level is 3 to 6 my level on a good day is 11 and 18 during an attack ... look up and follow a purine diet, drink lots and lots of 100% cherry juice. get a script from the dr' or it wont go away... and baking soda and water dont work.. to lower uric acid.. good luck.. if he starting with attacks. follow the det or he will end up like me in a wheel chair from joint inflammation and cant walk no more.. my mother is crippled from it.. and has had her elbows removed and 7in crystals cut out of her arms... get a hold on it now..
To all Gout sufferers which I am one. For fast relefe a docs percription of Indometacin Capsules works wonders within afew hours.Not a cure but a wonder never the less. Speedie recovery to all. Al.
Sorry for the late post, just saw your thread.
I have had attacks last 8 - 10 days. Last wk on day 8 of the attack, I hobbledf to the doc, he gave me colchicine. I already take endomethicine but only during the attack(mistake). The colchicine knocked the pain out within 12 hours.Then I had to deal with the side effect!! Don't get to far from home when on cochicine. The pain is gone but the redness and swelling is still present. This is day 12. Good luck fellow gouters.
