Gout is a common form of arthritis that is characterized by sudden, intense pain, swelling, redness, and tenderness. Gout may occur in any joint, but most commonly affects the base of the big toe. This pain can be sudden, intense, and often arises at night. Many people awake in the middle of the night with the sensation that their big toe is on fire. The affected joint may feel hot, inflamed, and tender. The pain may be so intense that even a bed sheet touching the joint is unbearable. Even though symptoms of gout may reappear now and then, there are ways to manage pain and prevent flare-ups.
