i get cortisone injections in hot spots... like my shoulders, knees , whatever joint is not responding to MTX, or the orencia, gout has meds that are much more affective than cortisone, it is a build up of uric acid usually in your feet or hands. and from what i hear it can be wicked painful. i think my mom and aunt took indocin for it. but i wouldn't trust my brain. lol..
I am glad that your grout will be getting cleaned as well lol!!!
I had my gall bladder out... the gall bladder filters the fatty foods, when that is taken out the liver has to learn the job, so no fried foods the build up of uric acid is usually from it pooling in an area. i don't know much about it. but i do know that is what gout is. college was a bit ago and gets a bit longer ago each day.. search it...
May tomorrow have joy, happiness, and a bit of healing.
