It’s time we talked gout, and about joint pain that affects many of us.
Ever woken up with a stiff neck? How about right now, is your back stiff from sitting at your computer, currently reading this article?
For the most part, we all experience joint pain to some degree due to athletic endeavours, long days at the office and the thing that we refer to as “kids.”
But could you imagine having joint pain all the time?
For those who suffer gout, you know this feeling all too well. Known as the “malady of kings,” gout is a form of arthritis that causes pain and inflammation within joints, leading to spikes of joint pain and significantly reduced mobility.
What is Gout?
Gout comes in acute and chronic attacks, causing sharp bouts of pain in joints (especially the big toe) or prolonged joint pain, respectively. Either way, gout can seriously hinder movement through joint pain and inflammation, making everyday activities near impossible.
Accounting for approximately 5% of arthritis cases, statistics reveal that although gout is 3 times as prevalent in men than women and affects those primarily in their 40’s/50’s, gout can afflict anyone, of any age.1
In some cases, gout has been known to manifest even as early as after puberty. In addition, gout is more prevalent in those with kidney disease, since uric acid is processed in the kidneys.
Dietary, genetic and environmental factors cause a spike in a chemical called uric acid
, which is normally processed by the kidneys. If uric acid rises to excess levels then uric acid crystals begin to form around joints, resulting in the characteristic joint pain, inflammation and redness with joints.
