There are a few symptoms of gout that always occur. Many times it can be difficult to diagnosis gout due to the similarity of other illnesses. Gout is a type of arthritis and mainly affects the joints. Some common symptoms include swelling, inflammation, redness and pain. The most common joint for gout is the big toe though it can affect any other joints. When treating gout methods involve treating the symptoms as well as the actually cause.
Ignoring gout can have some serious implications as it can lead to kidney and joint damage. Goat occurs because of an increase in uric acid in the blood stream. The kidneys usually remove uric acid from the blood so that it is excreted during urination. However for some reason, whether your kidneys are not working properly or you just have a high production rate of uric acid, gout will occur.
The vast majority of men over age 40 are affected by gout. Gout affects men much more then women. Gout can come about quickly, within 12 to 24 hours of raised uric acid levels in the blood. But it can take weeks to go away. Symptoms associated with gout include skin looking red or shiny, the joint feeling hot, swelling of the joint, tenderness in the joint and sever pain in the joint.
