Currently we are witnessing an outbreak of gout – How to recognize the disease?
Christmas and New Year festivities with tables laden with food cause people an outbreak of gout. For some people, excessive consumption of food ends in the aggravation of the disease. With others, gout symptoms appear for the first time in the post-holiday period.
Gout symptoms are a sudden, sharp pain which often starts at night, a swelling and redness in some of the joints, most often at the base of fingers or in a knee joint.
Gout is one of the oldest diseases mentioned in world history. It has been documented more than 2 500 years before Christ by ancient Egyptians. Gout has been well-researched and understood. However, the myth of its incurability is still alive.
Gout is curable
"Gout is a rare form of arthritis which is curable,” Anna Mihailova, the rheumatologist of the ORTO clinic, stresses. As usual in the post-holiday period, the number of her gout patients has noticeably increased. The doctor emphasizes that even though gout symptoms pass a few days after the outbreak, they should not be treated lightly and a doctor should be consulted. Gout is seldom limited to one outbreak. If the disease is left untreated, it can affect more and more joints and tissues, damage them and become harder to treat.
