Gout
 

Symptoms, Treatments and More!

Gout is an extremely painful condition usually resulting in Podagra which is a severe swelling of the big toe joint. Most patients who take a diuretic for hypertension or low dose aspirin therapy are especially susceptible to this painful malady. It is caused by too much uric acid which settles mainly in the joint of the big toe although may occur in other locations. Pain while walking and while in the bed with the cover on which came suddenly is a good indicator of gout diagnosis. It can be treated with cortisone injections and/or medications. Blood tests are usually ordered as well.
