The Gout got me
Word of warning gents, with our recent heavy snowfall and working all day to clear it, I came down with a bad case of the gout. I eat fairly healthy, doc this morning said too much Uric acid in the blood got me. I worked on the snow about 14 hours, he asked how much water I drank all day? (2 glasses) and did I sweat? (soaked through 2 T-shirts under my fleece) and are my muscles sore? (I hurt all over).
He says hard physical work breaks down your own muscles and that loads you up with uric acid, then too little water to rinse out my blood was what got me. Owww!
Y’all be careful out there as winter approaches. It’s easy to forget this.
