What is gout?

Gout is a form of arthritis. This condition is caused when there is a build-up of uric acid in the body that is then deposited in the joints. This excess acid causes crystallized deposits that cause the soft tissues in the affected joints to become irritated and swell.

Gout commonly affects the big toe and ankle joints in the feet, causing burning, swelling, and pain. Because of the swelling, the joints often become stiff and painful to move. Other common symptoms include redness of the skin around the joint and heat radiating from the skin.

Symptoms arise in the form of sudden attacks that happen without any warning. These attacks can happen at any point and can be triggered by diet, but are most common at night time.

This condition can be irritated further by conditions such as obesity, high blood pressure, heavy alcoholic consumption, and factors such as certain medications.
