Hello Asih, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Your complaint can indeed be caused by gout, rheumatoid arthritis, but it can also be caused by other conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome, joint inflammation (osteoarthritis), or inflammation of the protective lining of the soles of the feet (plantar fasciitis).
To determine which conditions are causing your complaint, it is advisable to check your condition further to the doctor. Your doctor may recommend that you undergo additional tests to determine the cause of your complaint, such as blood tests, X-ray images of the hands and feet or other examinations in accordance with the doctor's consideration. After the results of the evaluation are evaluated together with your physical condition, then you can determine what therapy should be given / done for you.
In addition to seeing a doctor, for a while at home, you can try taking pain relievers such as paracetamol which are sold freely on the market to help reduce complaints by adjusting the dosage to the ones listed on the packaging. It is not recommended to take rheumatic drugs, gout-lowering drugs or other drugs without any clear advice from your doctor because it can only aggravate complaints.
Also pay attention to whether there are certain things that cause complaints to become more severe, if any, avoid these things as much as possible. It is also recommended to use comfortable and not too narrow footwear to avoid worsening complaints. Also avoid standing too long.
Although it is unclear whether you suffer from gout or not, it's good you still limit the consumption of foods high in uric acid such as organ meats, spinach, spinach, beans, and gnetum. In addition, also avoid consuming foods / drinks that contain alcohol and avoid smoking. Also make sure to exercise regularly and regularly and avoid stress wherever possible.
I hope this helps.
