    Constipation is not necessarily linked to gout (my husband has it from time to time and the naproxen he takes to shift it does not cause constipation) whereas I am constantly constipated thanks to my pan relief (co-codamol) which I take to ease the pain of arthritis. DD

    Have you got the despatches? No, I always walk like this. Eddie Braben
