What Is Gout?
Fast Facts: An Easy-to-Read Series of Publications for the Public

"Gout is one of the most painful forms of arthritis. It occurs when too much uric acid builds up in the body. The buildup of uric acid can lead to:
•Sharp uric acid crystal deposits in joints, often in the big toe
•Deposits of uric acid (called tophi) that look like lumps under the skin
•Kidney stones from uric acid crystals in the kidneys.

For many people, the first attack of gout occurs in the big toe. Often, the attack wakes a person from sleep. The toe is very sore, red, warm, and swollen.

Gout can cause:
•Pain
•Swelling
•Redness
•Heat
•Stiffness in joints."

Causes of Spine Arthritis

"Causes of spinal arthritis vary widely from person to person. To understand the causes of spine arthritis, it is first important to know that there are many types of arthritis that can affect the spine. The most common are rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis.

Causes of Spine Arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is an autoimmune disease of connective tissue. It affects synovial lining, the thin membrane that covers inside of joint capsules and articular cartilage. RA causes white blood cells to turn against this membrane. This causes inflammation and destruction of the joint surfaces. This misdirected immune response can lead to whole-body fatigue and fevers."

How much should I exercise to help my osteoarthritis?

"The biggest risk in exercising when you have osteoarthritis is exercising too much. You should not start an exhausting or overly strenuous exercise program. Doing so will cause more damage. Instead, start at a low level and progress slowly to avoid joint injury. Starting at a low level of intensity also prevents you from overexerting yourself. You should still be able to breathe and speak normally while doing the activity. Avoid overheating as well. Drink plenty of fluids before, during, and after exercising. Also slow down your pace if you need a break. Never stop suddenly."
