Gouty Arthritis: Causes, Symptoms, Ayurvedic Treatment, and Relief (Trivandrum, Kerala)

What is Gouty Arthritis?

Gouty arthritis, also known as gout, is a painful and inflammatory form of arthritis caused by a buildup of uric acid crystals in your joints. When uric acid levels are too high, sharp crystals form, triggering excruciating pain, swelling, and redness. This condition commonly affects the big toe but can flare up in any joint, including the knees, ankles, wrists, and elbows.

Symptoms of Gouty Arthritis

  • Acute gouty arthritis attacks come on suddenly, often at night, with intense joint pain.
  • Chronic gouty arthritis causes persistent joint pain, stiffness, and may form tophi (lumps of uric acid crystals under the skin)
  • Swelling and redness in the affected joint.
  • Limited range of motion.

Causes of Gout

  • Diet: Foods high in purines, such as red meat, organ meats, and certain seafood, can increase uric acid levels.
  • Health conditions: Kidney problems, obesity, diabetes, and some medications can increase risk.
  • Genetics: A family history of gout increases your likelihood of developing it.
