Okay, here's the dilly. She says that sugar shouldn't affect the purine level in the body. But that caffeine does dehydrate. So by not drinking water and drinking beer. Yes. I have been aggravating the condition. Oh well, now I know. So anyway, she gave me a prescription. Two little pills + 1 every hour till the pain goes away.
The pain didn't go away, but it did lift quite a bit. I'm not so grumpy anymore. By Sunday I should be good as new.
Also, tried repeatedly to call Tyler and Zach, but now their machine is full and still no call back. Guess I'll just see them in the morning when I pick them up.
