Gout is a condition that results from crystals of uric acid depositing in tissues of the body. Gout characterizes by an overload of uric acid in the body and attacks of joint inflammation (Arthritis).
Chronic Gout can lead to deposits of solid lumps of uric acid in and around the joints, reduced kidney function, and kidney stones.
The tiny joint at the base of the big toe is the most probable site of an Acute Gout Attack. Other joints that can be affected involve the knees, ankles, wrists, fingers, and elbows. Acute Gout attacks are characterized by a rapid start of pain in the involved joint followed by warmth, swelling, reddish discoloration, and marked tenderness. Tenderness can be strong so that even a blanket rubbing the skin over the affected joint can be unbearable. Patients can develop a fever with acute gout attacks. These painful attacks usually recede in hours to days, with or without medication. In exceptional cases, an attack can persist for weeks. Most patients with Gout will endure repeated attacks of Arthritis over the years.
Gout is nine times more prevalent in men than in women. It predominantly strikes males after puberty, with a peak age of 75. In women, gout attacks usually occur after menopause.
The most reliable test for gout is finding uric acid crystals in the joint fluid obtained by joint aspiration (Arthrocentesis) while an elevated blood level of uric acid (hyperuricemia) may indicate an increased risk of Gouty Arthritis.
