Question:
Concerning my foot question on April 10, I have since gone to my polyclinic, had x-rays done, and yes, it is a heel spur that they say is symtomatic of gout. I also tested somewhat high uric acid and cholesterol levels. I normally do a lot of walking and as you can imagine, walking Moscow streets and metros is pretty stressful on the feet / heels, so it's possible to be stress-related too. As I'm fifty this year, I imagine age has something to do with it too. The clinic put me on a "compress" nightly, and I am doing therapy sessions with a Swiss instrument that resembles machine-gun hammers beating my heel. They also put me on a low uric acid diet. Initially, it seems to be helping although wouldn't mind knowing what you think? .and thanks..

Answer:
Thank you for your inquiry While none of us are aware that heel spurs / plantar fasciitis are linked to gout or high uric acid levels, we're glad the treatment is working. - good luck.
