Treat uric acid: High uric acid can cause arthritis, gout, with pain, swelling etc. You need to be evaluated for cause of elevated uric acid, as it can damage other organs as well, e.., kidney.

? Gout : www.painspot.com will lead you through a series of questions based on where you feel your pain, and then provide a list of possible causes and information about them. You can print that out and take it to your health provider, or a rheumatologist (arthritis specialist). The main thing is not to miss gout as is is treatable and preventable.
