Does anyone have experience with more frequent gout attacks since being on Lupron?
I used to have these attacks once a year, maybe twice. They are now a monthly event. Painful and debilitating. And much more frequent since I started w Lupron injections last November 5th.
Thanks for any feedback.
RPP in 2005, salvage radiation in 2009, proton radiation May 2019
I am in my 3rd month of ADT. I have not had a gout attack.
In 2018, I spent 6 of the 12 months on crutches from gout. My gout attacks have been very severe lasting 6 weeks or more at a time.
For the past 15 years this seems to have been the way it works. I go through stages where I have frequent sever attacks than periods of remission.
This year, in 2019, I have not been on crutches once. That said, I can feel it almost daily. It just has not blown up. I take nothing for it as Allopurinol can cause a flare when you start taking it, something I can't chance as I go through daily radiation, and the NSAID's and Steroids screw with my heart rhythm.
