My first really bad dose started right before we got on the cruise ship to Alaska...beef, beer, & seafood are quite abundant on a cruise ship, so it didn't get any better.That was sort of an ordeal. Had a couple of attacks since then, but not so bad if I watch the diet. I keep a bottle of black cherry juice in the fridge all the time, go through about one a week, plus a nutritionist friend of my wife recommended a combination of B vitamins. I've never had to take any pharma drugs for it.
Tart cherry juice is said to be better, but the black cherry is more to my taste & seems to do the job.
