What Is Gout?

Gout occurs when there’s a high level of uric acid in your blood. The crystals that subsequently form will accumulate near a joint - usually at the base of your big toe, causing tenderness, redness and swelling in that area. It’s often painful and uncomfortable, with many patients saying that their toe feels like it’s on fire.

Symptoms of Gout

  • Intense joint pain: While you might commonly feel pain in the large joint found on your big toe, you can experience joint pain in your elbows, knees, ankles, and wrists. 
  • Inflammation and redness: Infected joints get inflamed, making them feel tender, swollen, and warm. 
  • Limited range of motion: The infected joints may not move as well as they did before you had gout. This lack of mobility can start to have an impact on your daily life.
