Pain In The Legs Accompanied By The Appearance Of Lumps And Swelling Around The Veins?
Tonight, want to ask after eating beef on the sole of my feet arrived u0026sup2; pain, like a lump in the leg vein and like swelling, the pain reaches to one of the toes. Why are you doing this? What are the symptoms of gout? Tks
Thank you for the question.
Pain in the legs accompanied by the appearance of lumps and swelling around the veins can occur due to gout (gout arthritis), but can also be due to other reasons, for example skin infections, rheumatoid arthritis, bunion, irritant contact dermatitis, joint dislocation, bursitis, tendinitis, muscle cramps , benign or malignant tumors, and so on.
Typically, inflammation due to gout will cause lumps around the joints, such as between the fingers or also the wrists and feet. These lumps due to gout, besides being painful, are also often reddish, warm when touched, and make stiff when moved. Complaints can worsen when they are exhausted, when they are sorted, and when they consume foods and drinks that contain high purines, including red meat, organ meats, seafood, and so on.
In order to improve, you try to compress first with warm water the area of your feet that are painful and swollen. Avoid carelessly scrubbing or over-moving the area of pain and swelling so that inflammation does not become heavy. Expand first to rest, drink lots of water, and limit consumption of foods containing high purines as we have mentioned above.
If within 1-3 days the complaint does not improve, immediately check with your doctor to be treated further.
I hope this helps.
