Gout Complications: Gout complications can include joint damage, joint deformity, loss of mobility or range of motion, bone loss, tophi (chalky lumps or deposits that form underneath the skin), kidney stones, and chronic kidney disease. The presence of tophi can cause further complications, including difficulty walking, nerve damage from tophi pressing against a nerve, and chronic skin ulcers from erosion of skin.
