Pain in big toe? how to get rid of gout!

Gout is a form of arthritis that is located in the joints, often with pain in big toe. Gout occurs when high levels of uric acid accumulate in the body. Accumulation typically occurs in the joints of the big toe, ankle and knee. The acid slowly forms crystals that over time result in severe, sharp pain to the affected site. Purines are substances found in cells as well as foods. When broken down, purines form uric acid in the body. A diet low in purines can help to decrease uric acid production in the body and decrease the severity and frequency of gout.
