Gout

A painful form of arthritis

Gout is a form of arthritis that causes sudden, severe attacks of pain, tenderness, redness, warmth and swelling in joints. It usually affects one joint at a time — typically the large joint of the big toe — and often at night. You may go to bed feeling fine, but then wake up in the middle of the night feeling like your big toe is on fire. The pain is so bad that you can’t even have a bed sheet covering it. Gout can also affect your ankles, knees, hands and wrists.
