Gout is a type of arthritis that causes joint pain and swelling that usually lasts for a week or two and then subsides. Gout attacks usually start on the big toe or lower leg. Gout occurs when blood uric acid levels in the body increase, and the uric acid then forms needle-like crystals in and around the joints. This can cause joint pain and arthritis. However, many people with high uric acid levels do not develop gout. Some parts of the body that can be affected by gout are:
Bursae, pillow-like sac composed of bone and other tissues.
Tendon sheath, the membrane surrounding the tendon.
Kidneys, high uric acid levels can cause stones and sometimes kidney damage
Most of the symptoms of gout are pain in the joints. Most people’s first gout attack happens in the big toe, but it can also affect other joints in the body. Gout usually comes on suddenly at night, and the pain can be severe enough to wake you up.
If gout is not treated for a long time, tophus may develop. Tophus is the formation of needle-like crystals that form hard lumps under the skin, in and around joints, and other organs.
Some people with gout may also have other diseases or problems, primarily the heart and kidneys. Symptoms may include:
Chronic kidney disease
Myocardial infarction (heart attack)
Congestive heart failure
Gout can affect anyone. People assigned male at birth (AMAB) are three times more likely to develop gout. Assigned females at birth (AFAB) don’t usually develop gout until after menopause. People with certain health conditions are more likely to develop gout, including:

Gout is caused by a buildup of uric acid in the blood. If you produce too much uric acid or if your kidneys aren’t able to filter it adequately, uric acid can build up and form small, sharp crystals in and around your joints. These crystals can cause pain (redness) and soreness in the joints.
Gout is a disease caused by the deposition of sodium urate crystals in the joints or tissues. The four stages of gout include asymptomatic hyperuricemia, acute gouty arthritis, borderline gout, and chronic tophi gout.
Eat more fruits, vegetables and whole grains, which provide complex carbohydrates. Avoid foods and drinks containing high fructose corn syrup and avoid sugary fruit juices.
And also don’t get dehydrated.
Some patients have gout attacks that are limited to only 1-2 times a year (or even 1-2 times in a lifetime). However, for some patients, gout can be an unresolved, chronic, recurrent problem that occurs in several severe attacks over a short period of time.
