Bad Medicine

I broke my vow never to take the Indomethacin for gout because it's a powerful nsaid, and I can't tolerate that because it causes internal bleeding which I am prone to. At 2:30 in the morning it seemed like such a good idea - I took it and woke up 5 hours later. I'm going to keep taking it until the symptoms are totally gone because I don't want the gout to linger the way it did in my foot for three weeks after Thanksgiving. There may be a price to pay, but the relief and being able to move my arm may be worth it.
