Mirowpl, I followed your thread about
your stay at the Mayo. about
gout, my husband had it hit him many, many years ago. The dr did a UA & his uric acid level was very high. Did your dr do a UA? The dr put him on medication & it took a couple of weeks for it to settle down. It was not pred that he was put on. He also had to pay attention to his diet, as food plays a role with gout. If you will go to MayoClinic.com & type in gout, they have excellent info to read about
gout. Would you believe surgery was listed as a potential trigger for gout to appear? Good info there you should read, especially the foods to limit.
I say call your gi. The back pain could be a SE of the entyvio, the back pain is not because of the gout. Mouth ulcers we know comes with crohns. But one other thought I have is your body has gone through a lot of trauma. Being sick before surgery, then surgery, anemia & everything else. That's a lot of stuff going on. Really can't comment about
whether you are flaring, I just see someone with lots going on all at one time & your body is tired. It's going to take some time for you to bounce back.
Oh, you mentioned being on BP meds & Lupus. I am on 3 meds for BP, can you tell me where you read about
certain BP meds inducing Lupus, including which ones? Back in the day when I was on Remicade, I ended up with it inducing Lupus.
