What causes gout—and how can you cure it?
Any gout symptoms can be hard to pinpoint, especially if you have suffered for quite a while from the pain—you may not know what to look for. However, let’s look into what exactly might be some evident and obvious gout symptoms.
Do you feel warmth, pain or swelling?
Tenderness in your joints?
This typically happens in the joints of the toes and this symptom is recognized as “podagra.” Other gout symptoms include pain that begins at night when you’re going off to bed, rapid increase in discomfort that peaks at night then fades over several days afterward or peeling or itchy skin around the area that the pain comes from.
Gout symptoms can be hard to recognize as the actual ailment, so it’s important to stay conscious and aware of the gout symptoms you experience regardless of whether or not you think it is gout related. The causes of gout are the buildup of uric acid over a long period of time. This uric acid forms crystals around joints which causes the symptoms. Obviously having crystallized, built up uric acid can cause a wide variety of gout symptoms that will cause pain and irritation.
Getting rid of your gout may seem like a project, but luckily there are a lot of options on the market now that can help you, plus a lot of home remedies that can cure your gout symptoms. A lot of people try eating or drinking pineapple juice to help ease their gout. You can also try eating cherries (natural cherries—fresh preferably) that can help ease or cure your gout. There are a lot of other topical ointments and pastes you could prepare at home or purchase that will go on the skin and area of the impacted area to help ease the pain and discomfort you might feel and give you gout relief.
The good news is that a lot of people have success treating their own gout either with their own remedies or with over the counter treatments. You can significantly reduce your gout symptoms if not cure them all together. All you have to do is target the problem areas, apply the treatment of choice (or try several different ones until you find one that works) and wait for results. If your gout pain level decreases then keep using the treatment that works for as long as you need to.
