Veins Are Prominent Along With A Burning Sensation At Night In Gout Sufferers?
Hello ,, my mother is 50 years old, suffering from gout ,, why every night her legs ache when muscles bulge ,, tetasa sick and like burning ,, but only at night
Good evening, thanks for the question
According to research indeed acute attacks of joint inflammation due to uric acid 2x are more common at night than during the day. This is due to the uric acid that accumulates in the joints, bones, and soft tissue will crystallize to form urate crystals when the temperature is low at night. This then causes acute pain in the joints or affected bone. Complaints can also be accompanied by swelling and redness in the joints or related bones.
If you experience this, consult a doctor. During an acute attack the doctor may suggest taking non-steroidal pain medications. The doctor can also add therapy, namely anti-inflammatory drugs or colchicine to reduce the severity and duration of acute attacks.
For this reason it is important in controlling uric acid levels in the blood by controlling drugs and avoiding high purine food sources.
That's all, hope you can help
Wassalam, Dr. Farah
