Gout is a type of arthritis. It occurs when uric acid builds up in blood and causes inflammation in the joints.
Acute gout is a painful condition that often affects only one joint. Chronic gout is the repeated episodes of pain and inflammation. More than one joint may be affected.
Gout is caused by having higher-than-normal level of uric acid in your body. This may occur if:
~Your body makes too much uric acid
~Your body has a hard time getting rid of uric acid
When uric acid builds up in the fluid around the joints (synovial fluid), uric acid crystals form. These crystals cause the joint to become inflamed, causing pain, swelling and warmth.
The exact cause is unknown. Gout may run in families. The problem is more common in men, in women after menopause, and people who drink alcohol. As people become older, gout becomes more common.
