My doctor saw me and told me to come back in two weeks.
They told me he would not be there then so I had to wait over three weeks.
Sometime ago I had a couple of episodes of gout in my big toe.
The doctor put me on Allopurinol, 100 mg a day. Since I did not have any returning episodes I asked if I could discontinue taking it. He said I could try so hadn't taken it for a long time.
The last time I saw him he tripled my dosage THEN THE TROUBLE BEGAN
My fingers started peeling as well as my hands. They turned red and shiny. I tried putting cream on them but it did not help.
Today I had to get a refill so I read the side effects peeling, swelling of fingers and extreme tiredness and weakness. I have been so weak and can sleep 14 hours a day. I see him Monday but I am stopping the medication. After surgery I AM CHANGING DOCTORS. I left a message with the office for the doctor but that is another whole story.
I AM AN OVERCOMER. I WILL OVERCOME. EVERYTHING WILL BE ALRIGHT.
