No hard evidence: Uricelax is a natural supplement that claims to relieve symptoms of gout. There is little scientific evidence to support this. Any anti-inflammatory will help relieve some of the pain of a mild attack but its best to avoid trigger foods. Examples: Organ meats such as liver, seafood, beef and pork. Also sweet sodas, salty sauces and gravies, and beer. Consult your doctor for a complete eval.

Plantar Fasciitis: One of the most common sources of heel pain is plantar fasciitis which is an inflammation of the thick band of tissue that runs along the bottom of the foot and supports the arch. It commonly results in pain upon first standing up which eases with some stretching. It then gets worse over the course of the day. It needs to be thoroughly evaluated by a podiatrist to rule out other causes.

If the shape is norm: Toenail fungus will deform the shape of a toenail if the infection is present for too long. If you catch it before the nail has changed shape, it will go back to its normal shape after treatment. If the shape has changed, it will look much better, the color and texture will be restored, but the shape may be permanently changed.
