Gout is joint condition that produces pain and inflammation from the excess uric acid that crystallizes in the blood. Gout is a type of arthritis that typically affects people 40 years or older also called gouty arthritis. Gout can produce symptoms such as pain, hot sensation, and swollen joints. Most people develop gout in their big toe and then it spreads to other parts of the foot and eventually to nearby joints. Depending on your condition, the doctors at EZCare Clinic may prescribe anti-inflammatory medications to eliminate the pressure on the joints and reduce pain. Patients with chronic Gout may see an improvement in their symptoms through a customized health plan that may include diet changes, limited exercise, and decreased alcohol consumption to help decrease gout symptoms.
