Why do my feet feel like they are on fire?
This condition occurs in many forms and in four stages. You may experience gout that comes and goes or develop more chronic gout over time that damages your joints.
Gout can be aggravated for many reasons, such as from eating certain foods, and occurs most commonly in men between 40 and 50 years old and in postmenopausal women.
Your doctor can treat gout and may recommend healthy lifestyle habits to manage symptoms.
Causes of gout
Gout is a complex disease. There are a variety of factors that can play a role in causing it. Certain conditions, such as blood and metabolism disorders, can cause your body to produce too much uric acid. Drinking too much alcohol can also lead to excess uric acid.
Some foods can also cause gout when you eat too much of them. These include:
- red meat
- organ meat
- sweet juices
