That happened to me! I woke up to a very sore foot. I thought something bit me last night, or I slept with it in a bad position, or?? I figured it would work it self out. On the 2nd day it was harder to walk then it was the 1st day, so I got on the net and started researching. It took a while , but y research led me to gout. The doctor route typically involves waiting room, exam, prescription, and staying off the foo 5-10 days. Gout is a type of arthritis because of an accumulation of uric acid, usually a big toe… The process is caused by putting too much purine into your body, red meat, alcohol, etc. I found that tart cherry juice is the magic elixir.
I closed the lid on my laptop. now what? I’m a single man that can barely walk, but I can make it to my phone and car… so I called customer service at the grocery store I frequent, told the lady about the walking problem and asked if an employee could bring the juice to the front door. (I really didn’t think I could make it to the juice section). the plan we came up with was for me to call her when I got close the front door and I’d pay for the juice from the car. (I bought 3 bottles) They had “Knudsen Tart Cherry Juice”. I started drinking in the parking lot, drank while driving home, put the rest in the fridge, hit the sack and started walking better the next day and I was off and running. Bob
