Gout is a condition that often affects your feet, especially in the big toe, because of too much uric acid in your body.

The affected area may feel very painful. Some describe the pain as feeling like your foot is 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 should treat gout and may recommend healthy lifestyle habits to manage symptoms.
