good pain meds for gout??
I have had gouty arthritis for 6 years & have had 4 surgeries to correct stress fractures caused by extreme swelling during gout attacks. Even though I take allopurinal, indocin, etc I still have attacks at the minimum 2 times every 2 months or more. can anyone tell me which pain meds seems to have a greater effect on pain while going thru attacks? I am also given 90 norco 10s. 3 a day and it seems that after my last flare up the norco seems 2 not be ast effictive 4 pain. My doctor is sending me to pain mgmt . Amd an arthritis dr. I have never taken anything stronger than the norco 10s and want to know what pain mgmt may prescribe. No oxycontions or anything major strong but something 2 knock out the pain! Never been to pain mgmt and not sure what they normally do? Chris

Hey Chris!

Pin management may prescribe stronger medication to control the pain, while this would just mask the symptoms without having any effect on the primary process. Along with pain management it is also important to control the disease process by diet modification and specific medications. I would suggest consulting an internist or a rheumatologist for suggestion of an appropriate management plan along with pain management.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
