That is some *really bad* gout. That's got to be incredibly painful to have tophi that big all over your hands... I have gout but thankfully it's controllable with diet in my case - high fructose corn syrup is a big aggravator so I try to avoid things like HFCS-sweetened soft drinks


pebblenugget

My brother has gout that flares up with alcohol and red meat/pork. His is on a knee (or both, idk) but he has to use crutches or a wheelchair when it does


Squigler

It's rare meat combined with alcohol for me. A single piece of meat won't cut it, but if I eat steak for two days I can feel my toe begin to flare up. Especially when combined with drinking. Lots and lots of water seems to help flush it out if I'm on time and then it only feels annoying. I still remember the first time it happened to me. One of the most painful experience I've ever had.


daladybrute

My dad has gout and when it flares up it’s really bad but his fingers have never looked like this. I see how painful it is to walk, I can’t imagine the pain with it being in their hands.


WebMaka

I can give you a rough idea: when I had a flareup on my big toe, the sensation of a light breeze disturbing the hairs over that joint was enough movement to feel like someone was bashing the joint with a red-hot framing hammer. So imagine that much sensitivity on a hand, where everything is in constant motion in multiple directions at once.


guriboysf

Damn... I can definitely relate to this. I couldn't stand the pain from a bed sheet touching my toe when I had a gout attack. It was more painful than when I broke my leg.


WebMaka

Two afflictions exist for men that women say hurt worse than childbirth. One is passing a kidney stone. The other is a gout flareup.


Sirusi

So can you have soft drinks if they're sweetened with normal sugar?


WebMaka

They don't seem to bother/flare my gout, so, yes as long as I don't try to live on them. I like stuff like Sierra Mist, Mexican sodas like Jarritos or Mexican Coke since they're sweetened with sugar, southern style sweet tea, etc. and after a while of avoiding HFCS one starts to notice that HFCS is actually pretty nasty tasting stuff that's horrible for the body in multiple ways.


SnappyBonaParty

It's kinda interesting to hear.. here in Denmark (and I believe the entire EU) HFCS is banned in food and drinks for human consumption


pvdp90

Mexican coke is no longer sweetened by natural sugar, it's HFCS now.


Lady_Red_Wolf

You are partially correct, Mexican coke distributed in Mexico will have HFCS mixes, but the “Mexican coke” sold in the states will continue to have cane sugar. https://tulsaworld.com/business/bottler-assures-that-mexican-coke-in-u-s-will-still-use-cane-sugar/article_9507b556-1111-50ab-ae20-fde747eafba9.html

Huh, TIL


WebMaka

Welp, that comes off the list then.


JosephAndMyself

I've been bed ridden from gout on the more intense flare ups. This looks like hell. Gotta stay away from those intestinal meats.


EatMyShortsSteve

I think someone mentioned gout in the last post.


dabcegorilla345778

Yup! Definitely gout tophi (crystals that form in joint tissue and cause pain)


[deleted]

Gout. And you can get it younger than you think, my partner's brother got it at 26 from a diet of alcohol, red meat and shellfish.


xjustinxsanex

Shit I had a round of gout when I was 22. I could barely walk. They thought it was from my diabetes.


capricornflakes

I don’t mean to be offensive…but at the time you got it did you just not eat a mildly diverse diet with any vegetables or fruits? I’m genuinely curious.


xjustinxsanex

I ate nothing honestly. We had a new baby and I was working 2 jobs so I'd survive on mtn dew and slim Jim's


FL4K808

I was 19 when I got it. 23 now.


zillskillnillfrill

Are you sure it was gout? because once you get it you have it for life! I get flare ups about once a year


ryannathans

This is not true, once you control the level of uric acid it "goes away". If you are having problems controlling uric acid you should see a dietician.


zillskillnillfrill

I'm sure that all be other people over at r/gout would love to hear your wisdom


ryannathans

You can have chronic problems with any disease. If you always have high uric acid then you either haven't found the cause or haven't been able to address the cause.


slappytheclown

why do you dispute his very rational claim?


zillskillnillfrill

It's been edited since I replied


ryannathans

Not true


slappytheclown

I believe edited posts are marked as such and I don't see it. What did it say before the "edit"?


SendGothTittiesPls

Go tell em then

Holy hell, looks like they injected cream cheese into their fingers and squeezed it out. Whatever that us, looks like it's wicked shitty to have.


BeauBuffet

And now I want cheesecake.


wu_cvnt

delicious chunky, expired cheesecake


VE6AEQ

It’s way more painful than a lack of cheesecake, let me assure you.


uhyeaokay

Lol it’s uric acid


r_a_g_s

[Uric acid.](https://www.healthline.com/health/tophus#:~:text=Tophi%20often%20look%20like%20swollen,severe%20pain%20called%20gout%20attacks.) > A tophus (plural: tophi) happens when crystals of the compound known as sodium urate monohydrate, or uric acid, builds up around your joints. Tophi often look like swollen, bulbous growths on your joints just under your skin. > Tophi are a symptom of gout, a condition where uric acid crystallizes in joints like those in your feet and hands. > Gout can cause episodes of severe pain called gout attacks. Without treatment, gout can become a chronic condition and increase your risk of developing tophi and joint damage.


Dfiggsmeister

It’s gout. The white stuff is Uric acid that has solidified and formed crystals/puss like stuff. It’s incredibly painful. Gout is caused by rich diets with a low activity lifestyle. Anybody can get it but genetics and certain ethnicities are more prone to getting it earlier in life. It usually attacks the feet, knees or hands with painful swelling that acts more like a burn than anything else. It can also be extremely debilitating. Once you have gout, you have to change your diet to avoid flare ups. No more red meat, limit milk/cheese consumption and cut back on sugar and alcohol.


grandwahs

I can't imagine how painful that is, oh my god. Thank god for allopurinol.
