Learn about the National Institute of Arthritis & Musculoskeletal & Skin Diseases.
The most frequent signs of gout mimic other forms of arthritis, though the symptoms are usually limited to a specific joint. Common symptoms of gout include the following:
hyperuricemia (an excess of uric acid in the body)
presence of uric acid crystals in joint fluid
more than one attack of acute arthritis
arthritis that develops in a day, producing a swollen, red, and warm joint
attack of arthritis in only one joint (typically the toe, ankle, or knee)
Many new therapies for inflammatory rheumatologic diseases have been made available, and we are focused on finding the best therapeutic program for every patient.
