Gout/La Gota

I suffer through it in waves; recently controlled.  It was related to wealth & excess in the 18th-19th c.  Mine is a side-effect of a needed medication.  This 1799 print (from History Today magazine site) is a good vision of the beast — jut a little too sweet-looking.  The reality is worse.

The gout hurts.  More than this but the 18th c. print begins to show it.
