Thanks for the update about your gout symptoms, Chand.

You need to be aware that gout pain and swelling will subside naturally in a few days. But, you must not ignore excess uric acid that causes gout. If you fail to control uric acid, gout will get worse. Eventually, it spreads to all joints. Gout prevents natural joint repair, so you will get damage to cartilage, tendons, and bone.

After that, gout spreads to soft tissues. You will get damaged skin, kidneys, and heart. All organs are at risk, except the brain.

I urge you to start treatment for uric acid control. If you want me to help you with this, please post your latest uric acid blood test results. Also post as much history as you can about symptoms, test results, and any gout treatments you have tried.
