About the middle of last week I had a gout flare-up again, it started slow.  The next day I got quite ill and that was compounded by the medicine I take for gout upsetting my digestive system.

I missed a little work.  I skipped meal tracking and weighing for a few days.  I wasn’t worried, as I usually eat less and lose a little weight when I’m sick.  That wasn’t the case this time.

I’m back to tracking again, but I gained a few pounds.  <shrug>

Although the illness has passed, the gout has not.  In the past it’s been my left foot.  This time it’s the right foot.  Today was especially bad.  There are quite a few stairs at work, and that’s just no fun.  I’ll work from home tomorrow so I won’t need to walk much.
