Go to the doctor.

NSAIDs, etc.. treat the symptoms - not the cause.

Get medication that gets uric acids back into line.

As I read more and more on Gout I find many issues with gout come from diet beyond the known junk we eat. I am very sensitive to nitrates in foods. processed meats seam to be the worst. anything like hot dogs and peperoni get me knees bad. beer effects my feet. certain sausage products are real bad, but I have been finding pre prepared chicken products are getting bad. I bought some general sow's chicken and cooked it up. made my knee swell to the point my doctor wanted to drain them for water content. other things to wary of is High fructose and corn syrup. if you eat alot of it it may have a bunch to do with your pain level.
things I have been doing to negate the effects. coconut water(almost pure potassium)
I mix a lot of whey shakes and use this as a base. If I think I have eaten something that will mess me up I have a shake before bed. flushes out the crystals while you sleep.

another thing to avoid, yellow cheese. if its white its ok. the softer the cheese the worst it seams to before me/you.

I tried baking soda and it worked like a charm! I'm gonna talk to the doc about daily medication.

Thanks for the coconut water advice. Just started reading up on it that particular. I know some one who has weekly flair ups caused by just about everything and is allergic to allopurinol. His hits knees, shoulders, feet and recently his spine and chest. He said friday night it started because he drank a mt. Dew for lunch. Would make sense from the high fructose corn syrup.
