Gout is a condition that causes pain, inflammation and swelling in one or more of the joints. It usually affects the big toe, but can develop in any joint in the body.


Gout is hallmarked by elevated levels of uric acid in the blood stream. In this condition, crystals of monosodium urate or uric acid are deposited on the articular cartilage of joints, tendons, and surrounding tissues. It is marked by transient painful attacks of acute arthritis initiated by crystallization of urates within and about the joints and can eventually lead to chronic gouty arthritis and the deposition of masses of urates in joints and other sites, sometimes creating tophi.


Gout can affect anyone. Men are more likely to get gout than women are, but women become increasingly susceptible to gout after menopause. 



The signs and symptoms of gout are almost always acute, occurring suddenly, often at night and without warning. They include: 
- Intense joint pain. Gout usually affects the large joint of your big toe but it can occur in your feet, ankles, knees, hands and wrists. If untreated, the pain typically lasts five to 10 days and then stops. The discomfort subsides gradually over one to two weeks, leaving the joint apparently normal and pain-free. 
- Inflammation and redness. The affected joint or joints become swollen, tender and red.

Fortunately, gout is treatable, and there are ways to reduce the risk that gout will recur.
