line-breakIs gout really all about pain? What are the different kinds of “pain” that gout causes? There definitely are different kinds of pain that gout causes and that’s why this is a good topic for a gout conference call.

Hi Bert,

I have followed your advise for quite some time now and really appreciate your daily messages – keeping everything on track.  I haven’t had an attack for over 2 years now, which is great.  However, as a result I believe of previous attacks and poor diet etc I have developed smallish Tophi deposits on and around the big toe on both feet.  2 months ago I decided to take the opportunity to have the larger deposit removed from the left big toe. Although the deposits have been removed, the recovery period has been extremely challenging. I will soon have to decide whether to have the same operation done on the right foot.  Just wondering whether in your experiences you have known tophi to disappear through continually eating the right stuff, drinking water and basically all the good stuff that we should be doing?  I would prefer not to have another operation if possible.
Keep up the good work.

Kind regards

What Is The High Cost Of Gout In Your Life?

Is it embarrassing for you to limp around, wincing and grimacing in pain? Does it “hurt” you to not be able to make a living and provide for your family?

There is a very primal suffering that comes along with gout as well. If you think back to caveman days, if you were out there on the landscape, limping and lagging behind the pack, you became prey for predator animals or your enemies!


There were a few folks who spoke up on this call about the different kinds of pain that gout caused them. Give it a listen and leave a comment about how “painful” gout has been for you.



Bert Middleton

“I know your pain. Let me help you kill your gout for good!  And teach you to advocate for yourself and take ownership of your gout recovery, by showing you how to live the gout-free lifestyle.” Two decades ago, Bert Middleton found himself diagnosed with gout. Like 8.3 million other people in the United States (approximately 4% of the population), he struggled helplessly with the physical, emotional, social, and financial impact that gout left unchecked can have on your life. Prescription drugs were of limited help… And the terrible pain of regular gout attacks left him unable to enjoy even the simplest daily pleasures. His marriage was suffering. His finances were spiraling due to the impact gout had on his ability to work. And maintaining a social life was often nearly impossible. Tophi surgeries left him in terrible pain.  And he found himself depressed … and angry … that gout was stealing years of his life.

Until one day, after hundreds of hours of research and self-experimentation, Bert finally had a breakthrough and created a blueprint for a way of living that would prove to be “the answer” to living gout-free for nearly a decade now. Today, Bert and his “Gout Wife” Sharon devote their evenings and weekends to educating other gout sufferers on how to live the gout-free lifestyle. Showing others his 911 Emergency Response Gout Recovery Plan for getting PAINFUL gout attacks under control in as little as 4 hours. And then, how to make daily choices that keep gout under control for GOOD! So you can finally start LIVING again!
