What Sucks...Gout



Least sexy disease ever.

A painful disease that is caused by “needle-like” crystals of uric acid falling between the joints of your foot and big toe.

It’s even less sexy than the way I’m describing it. The purity of gout’s suckage is what this blog was made for.

If you’ve ever had it, safe to say, you’re not a hot chick.

To give you an idea of how un-sexy gout is, I wrote a quick email to the Journal of New England Medicine* and asked them if they could provide a list of “hotter”, more “sensual” diseases and, just off the top of the guys head, he came up with these…

1) TB
2) Rheumatoid Arthritis
3) Capgras Syndrome
4) ALS
5) Arachnoiditis


The great Un-Sexy
