BEFORE LOCAL: What is gout? What you need to know about this painful disease


Abibsi says gout "hurts like hell," and the joints, often at the foot or large toe, will swell for a few days.

"The wrist immune system doesn't want this uric acid [and] is attacking his own wrist to get rid of this unwanted guest, "she said.

Dewey-Thurington says another sign of gout may be low-grade fever.

"In more severe cases, gout can affect more than one joint."

John says the symptoms can last about a week and besides the toe, gout can also occur in the knee, corner, middle foot, wrist and elbow.
