What Is Gout?
Gout is a form of rheumatic disease caused by excessive uric acid deposits in the joints. It can affect any joint, such as your fingers, wrist, elbow, knee, ankle, or foot. However, the large joint of your big toe is usually the first to show symptoms.
The buildup of sharp, needle-like uric acid crystals that lead to pain and swelling in the joint is to blame for your gout attack. Gout usually occurs suddenly and may come and go in intensity over several days.
What Are The Symptoms of Gout?
Symptoms of gout include sudden, severe pain and tenderness, redness, warmth and swelling, in the affected joints, most commonly the big toe. Initially, attacks often occur at night and may sometimes be confused with a broken toe.
In severe attacks, the weight of bedding on the swollen joint can cause excruciating pain. Repeated attacks can be preceded by tingling in previously affected joints.
How Is Gout Diagnosed?
Gout can be difficult to diagnose as it may be confused with other illnesses, such as a sprain or an infection. It is diagnosed with a physical examination, medical history, and a test to measure the amount of uric acid in your blood. Joint damage in chronic gout conditions can be seen on x-ray.
