Joint pain causing severe physical and financial discomfort?
Get Disability for Gout.
Gout is sometimes referred to as the “disease of kings.” This is because it has been incorrectly linked to the overindulgence of rich food and fine wine, once only available to royalty. In reality, it is a disease of the masses, afflicting millions of Americans each year.
Gout is on one of the most painful forms of arthritis. It is caused by too much uric acid in the blood, which causes hard crystals to form in the joints. It can also cause kidney stones.
Gout is characterized by sudden attacks of burning pain and swelling in a joint, most often in the feet and especially in the big toe. Gout can also affect other joints in the body, including the knees, elbows, wrists and spine.
