The attacks (most commonly affecting the big toe but also the knee, ankle, heel, midfoot, elbow, wrist, and fingers) will cause sudden and extreme pain accompanied by swelling, stiffness, redness, fatigue, and occasionally mild fever.What precipitates an attack of gout?
Gout symptoms are caused by the excessive accumulation of uric acid, a condition known as hyperuricemia. Over time, the build-up can lead to the formation of uric acid crystals in and around a joint, triggering severe and protracted bouts of pain and inflammation.Will a gout attack go away on its own?
While gout can eventually go away on its own, it may last for years. Gout attacks last for about a week in length, and the majority of sufferers experience multiple attacks per year. Untreated gout can cause a risk for diabetes and heart disease. Chronic gout can also cause kidney stones. Gout is caused by a buildup of uric acid in the blood.
