Hello isabella75 are you an escapee from Mumsnet? If so, I think you'll find that we're older and a little bit wiser on here - we've been there, done that and been sick down the t-shirt. wink

Hello Isabella, are you in the UK? Do you sell tea?

Oopsadaisy1 Thu 18-Nov-21 14:30:01

That’s clever way to get Spam onto GN.

I have tried Rooibos tea in the past, now that you mention it.
It was horrible

Blossoming Thu 18-Nov-21 14:51:33

I think it detoxes you by scouring out your stomach and bowels FannyC grin

Hello Blossoming! I was going to pm you about this, but while you are high and we’re talking health drinks, I highly recommend Cherry Active to you. Loads of it on Amazon. It does work

FannyCornforth Thu 18-Nov-21 14:56:23

Here! Not high! Although if you are taking as many meds as I am, you could be!

Blossoming Thu 18-Nov-21 14:58:44

Haha, I have a new one called Colchicine. It’s a painkiller and it knocks me out. It definitely works on the pain though, it’s much better.

FannyCornforth Thu 18-Nov-21 15:01:19

Yes, I’m in a similar boat. My pregabalin has been upped, the relief is brilliant, but I’m asleep most of the day (still awake at night though hmm)

Does it? I’m on two a day for gout and it does nothing fo4 the pain now the attack is over and my sleep is as bad as ever!

Blossoming Thu 18-Nov-21 15:27:23

I’m on 3 x 500mcg a day for gout, I’ve been told to step taking them as soon as the attack is over. I’m newly diagnosed and think this is the second attack as I had problems with severe foot pain a few months ago. It’s really knocking me out.
