Hello Anon

Thank you for writing and I'm sorry you're in pain.

Are you looking for home remedies for gout?

For a medical remedy, the most common way to treat a gout attack is with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) taken orally, or corticosteroids. In more extreme cases, the doctor may prescribe colchicines.

For home - doctors recommend following a low-purine diet (green vegetables, tomatoes, fruits and fruit juices, breads not containing yeast, nuts, milk, butter, cheese, chocolate, coffee and tea). Foods like beef, pork, bacon, lamb, seafood, and yeast should be avoided. Asparagus, cauliflower, mushrooms, peas, spinach, whole-grain breads and cereals, white poultry, kidney and lima beans should be used in moderation only.

For pain right now - Ibuprofen and lemon juice can help as well as the cherries. Mix lemon juice with baking soda (a small teaspoon) in a glass of water and drink it. It may not be the most appetizing drink but it'll really help. A glass of water with a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar is also a helpful remedy.

I hope you feel better soon.
