    After knee arthroscopy recently - surgeon told me I had chondro-calcinosis (Pseudogout). Now Rheumatologist has informed me that I have real Gout. He is thinking now about putting me on another drug! Nurse Specialist has suggested Iloprost Infusion - yet another drug. I meet none of the risk factors for gout so I am wondering if I am experiencing side effects from the other drugs I am on. I work for the NHS full time and have to for some years to come as I am the only breadwinner. Thanks for your website - very informatve. Kind regards. Chris Kirwan (Mrs)

  • I want to know if in fact there is a relation between these conditions and if there is any possibility that the adderall which he used for years before getting the other two conditions has anything to do with the two. Also if the chronic asthma medications he was exposed as a baby (proventyl, pulmicort and prednisone). Fyi child has allergy to amoxil. Thank you.
