Have Gout?

Managing the Immediate Pain

A gout attack may be so painful that you may not be able to put on your shoe or walk even a few steps. Even a bed sheet touching a gouty foot can be painful.

The goal is to relieve your pain as quickly as possible when you experience a gout flare. Your doctor may prescribe you an anti-inflammatory medicine to help reduce the immediate pain of a gout attack.
