Gout is one of the most painful types of arthritis and accounts for 5% of all cases of arthritis. Gout is characterized by sudden, severe bouts of redness, warmth, pain and inflammation in one or more joints. Most commonly, the big toe is the initial joint involved, but other joints can become involved in recurring attacks.

Gout results from the deposit of Uric Acid crystals in the joint space. Uric acid is the end product caused by the breakdown of purines. Purines are naturally found in the body and are in many foods. Gout can occur if the body provides too much uric acid, doesn’t eliminate enough uric acid or if too many foods high in purines are consumed.

Gout can occur in many joints with the big toe being the most common. The top of the foot and the ankle are the other most common locations for gout attacks in the foot. Usually the pain is sudden and severe. It can cause the deposit of a thick white substance called “tophi”.

There are many treatments for gout. When an acute attack occurs, strong anti-inflammatory medication prescribed by a doctor is needed. Drink plenty of water. Avoid alcohol and foods high in purines. It is important to note that purines are found in all protein foods. Foods that are recommended by the American Medication Association for people with gout are: fruits, vegetables, breads, cereal, pastas, fish and carbonated beverages. And best of all, chocolate is “OK” as well.

If you ever experience a severe pain in your foot that starts for no reason, it could be gout. Start by applying ice, take ibuprofen (if tolerated) and elevate the foot. If nothing changes in 12-24 hours, then get an appointment immediately. Gout can be quieted relatively quickly with specific medication.
