How to Cure a Gout Attack? Gout is a complex form of arthritis that often affects men; however, women are increasingly susceptible to gout after menopause. A gout attack can occur suddenly, often waking you up in the middle of the night with the sensation that a joint or muscle is on fire. The affected joint or muscle will be hot, swollen, and so tender that even the weight of a bedsheet may seem intolerable. Fortunately, there are treatments to relieve a gout attack.
Check the joint for intense pain, swelling, or redness. Usually gout causes severe pain in one joint, like the base of your big toe, or joints like your ankle, wrist, or elbow. Affected joints will swell and the skin may look red or inflamed. Any joint can be affected by gout, and sometimes two or more joints can be affected at one time.
