Gout and Uric Acid Specialist in Pune – Dr. Nilesh Patil
What is a Gout
Gout is a general and compact form of arthritis that can affect anyone. It’s characterized by immediate, critical attacks of pain, inflammation, redness, and tenderness in the joints, usually the joint at the base of the huge toe.
An attack of gout can happen quickly, usually waking you up in the middle of the night with the feeling that your big toe is on fire. The injured joint is hot, swollen and so painful that even the weight of the sheet on it may look painful.
