Gout is a form of inflammatory arthritis caused by a build-up of uric acid in the bloodstream. The painful, swelling symptoms are especially noticeable in the feet, notably the big toe. Whenever the sudden, intense pain comes in waves, or “gout attacks,” it can feel like one’s foot is on fire. Gout comes in different forms, such as hyperuricemia, acute gout, and tophus gout, to name a few. Hyperuricemia is just what it sounds like – too much uric acid in the bloodstream. Acute gout is when you feel the “gout attack” coming but it only affects one joint. If you neglect your arthritic condition, it will result in tophus gout, which is characterized by hard nodules in your skin and joint tissue. A-1 Home Care in Brentwood offers quality 24-hour arthritis care to relieve seniors from daily tasks while encouraging them to live healthy lifestyles.
