Gout is known as an unexpected series of severe attacks of pain, redness and tenderness in joints, typically the joint at the bottom of the big toe. Advacare Healthcare Clinics can help people suffering from gout manage their symptoms and relieve pain. Gout is a more in depth form of arthritis that can happen to anyone but it’s more likely to develop in men, and in woman after menopause.
The Pain of Gout
Even a mild case of gout may wake you up in the middle of the night feeling like your big toe is on fire. The joint that is affect is hot, swollen and so sensitive that even the sheet draped over your toe can be intolerable. The good news is: gout can be treated with natural remedies, and there are certain methods to help hinder gout from reoccurring, and AdvaCare Clinics is here to help.
Causes of Gout
Acute Gout is not as frequent as Chronic Gout and usually only affects one tendon. But Chronic Gout develops when urate crystals gather in your joint, which can lead to the inflammation and the intense pain of a gout attack. Urate crystals may develop when you have high levels of uric acid within your blood. Your body makes uric acid when it wants to break down purines, which are materials that are located in your body naturally, and found in certain foods, like meats, anchovies, herring, asparagus and mushrooms. Gout forms either because your body is making too much uric acid or cannot break it down.
