For about the last 20 years I have been suffering from quite acute gout. The pain would always attack in both ankles or feet. The gout had affected both my shoulders over the last five years as well. My shoulders were constantly stiff and sore which really impacted on my life.
What is Gout?
It seems gout is a type of arthritis caused by high uric acid in your body which causes crystals to form in the joints. The joints become red, inflamed and painful. I do believe that only a person that has suffered a gout attack will know how painful it is.
