As if the last couple of weeks couldn’t get worse: they did… After threatening to flare up over the previous weekend (I suspect through a combination of being overall feeling run down, and dehydration), the gout in my ankle decided to put in a massive appearance, waking me up at 3am on Wednesday morning and resulting in the need for a trip to the doctors for painkillers. Said painkillers need to be taken with food, so the intermittent fasting has been put on hold this week so I can have a light breakfast with which to take the tablets. Again, meals have been super simple as I’ve had to spend most of my time sat with my ankle elevated. Fortunately the pain is subsiding now, but the swelling and mobility usually takes a lot longer to recover.
I’m now pre-menstrual, so have swelling and tenderness in the usual places, with the associated water retention and weight on top, so no true change on the scales.
