I am 53 years old. My complaint is that it is very painful. I’ve checked with the lab. Indeed, only high uric acid 7.4. others are normal. I have visited the doctor but there is no change. Trsbt pain is not in the joints nor is it swollen or red which I read is characteristic of gout. The place is from below the armpit and then up the neck and down again between the joints. If you sleep, it doesn’t hurt. It hurts when the hands hang down. Thank you for the answer, doctor.

Hi Adi, Thank you for the question.

Gout is an inflammation of the joints that causes painful, red, swollen joints and limited joint movements caused by the buildup of uric acid crystals in the joints. Gout mostly occurs in the joints of the fingers, knees, ankles and toes. Complaints of pain in the underarm area that you feel are not necessarily caused by gout. These complaints can be caused by:

muscle tension muscle injury that causes a tear in the tendinitis muscle, or inflammation of the tendons (tissue that connects the muscles to the bones) calcification of the shoulder area and others. Direct examination by a rheumatologist is needed to determine the cause of your complaint. Please consult your doctor because the doctor needs to ask further about your complaint and carry out your physical examination. The doctor may perform further tests such as X-rays, ultrasound, or MRI to find the exact cause and then determine the next treatment.

The following suggestions you can do:

do warm compresses on the sore area rest the sore area, avoid activities that involve moving the shoulders and upper arms too heavy avoid lifting heavy weights take paracetamol if the pain worsens Hope this information is helpful.
