The Best Gout Treatment in Corsicana TX

gout treatment in corsicana txGet Gout Relief Today in Corsicana!

Gout is a painful disorder that most frequently affects the joint of your big toe. It is an inflammation that usually develops in people with a high concentration of uric acid in their blood. This acid can create needle-like crystals in the joints and lead to sudden but severe episodes of inflammation and  pain. 

If you have symptoms of this disorder and seek gout treatment in Corsicana, TX, we have good news. Our award-winning podiatrists at Family Foot & Ankle Centers have the experience to help you get back to living without gout pain.

Signs and Symptoms

The symptoms of gout usually appear at night and include:

  • Intense Pain in Your Big Toe

Gout can affect any joint in your body but tends to affect the joint of your big toe most often. This is because of the cooler temperature of your feet. The uric acid crystallizes and builds up in your joint, causing pain and inflammation. It can also affect other joints such as the knees, ankles, wrists, elbows, and fingers. The pain is usually most intense during the first 10-12 hours after symptoms begin.

  • Redness and Inflammation

In gout, the affected joint is tender, swollen, inflamed, warm, and always sensitive to touch. If left untreated, the pain associated with gout can last for weeks, leading to disability, swelling and redness.

  • Prolonged Discomfort

Once the pain subsides, the ache and discomfort can last for days and even weeks (vary from one person to another). In the weeks that follow, later attacks are more likely to happen. The attacks might be more prolonged, more severe, and may affect multiple joints at once. 

  • Joint Stiffness

As gout starts to progress and become chronic, you might become unable to move your toes easily. 

Treatment

Most gout patients are treated with medications only. Prescription medicines are used to treat the pain and inflammation. This occurs relatively quickly. There is also prescription medicine used to prevent future attacks and other complications like the development of joint damage or kidney stones.

Commonly prescribed medications for gout include NSAIDs (anti-inflammatory drugs), corticosteroids, and colchicine. These medicines can reduce pain, swelling, and inflammation in the joint that is painful.

Some medicines are also given to reduce the uric acid (drugs like xanthine oxidase inhibitors, i.e., allopurinol) or to improve the kidney’s abilities to remove urate crystals from the bloodstream (drugs like probenecid).

Your foot doctor might also ask you to decrease alcohol consumption, increase exercise, and lose weight to increase the effectiveness of gout medication.

Contact our award-winning podiatrists in Corsicana if you have a gout flare-up. We can help find the cause of these attacks and advise you on how to prevent them in the future.
