"      I have fibromyalgia, degenerative disk disease, spondylolisthesis, bursitis, pinched nerves, bulging disks, arthritis and osteoarthritis. My mom bought me a pair of the cross-strap sandals and I've barely taken them off. I spent 45 minutes walking around with NO PAIN that it usually entails. Thank you SO MUCH for these shoes, you truly are a Godsend."

Cute gout attacks are characterized by a rapid onset of pain in the affected joint followed by warmth, swelling, reddish discoloration, and marked tenderness. The small joint at the base of the big toe is the most common site for an attack. Other joints that can be affected include the ankles, knees, wrists, fingers, and elbows. In some people, the acute pain is so intense that even a bed sheet on the toe causes severe pain. These painful attacks usually subside in hours to days, with or without medication. In rare instances, an attack can last for weeks. Most people with gout will experience repeated bouts of gouty arthritis over the years.

CAUSES OF PAIN

Arthritis pain is caused by several factors, such:

  • Inflammation the process that causes the redness and swelling in your joints;
  • Damage to joint tissues, which results from the disease process or from stress, injury or pressure on the joints;
  • Fatigue that results from the disease process, which can make your pain seem worse and harder to handle;
  • Depression or stress, which results from limited movement or no longer doing activities you enjoy. You can get caught in a cycle of pain, limited/lost abilities, stress and depression that makes managing pain and arthritis seem more difficult.
