Gout is known for the swelling it causes, sometimes it urges patients to not wear any jewelry. With swelling comes redness and it signifies inflammation. All this causes excruciating pain in a number of joints around the body. Sometimes the pain might disappear in couple days and sometimes it may linger for lengthy periods of time resulting in long term inflammation in the joints.
On the other hand, redness can also travel around the body beginning from around one toe and crawling up the knees or even higher making normal daily activities like walking, harder to achieve.
