In brief: Usually joint pain
A gout attack is one of the most severe joint pains that you can experience.
The most common site is the big toe. Other symptoms of gout can be kidney stones (also painful) or chalky deposits in the skin ( painful if large and draining through the skin). Gout can cause joint deformity. The good news is that gout is a very treatable disease with dietary changes and medications.

In brief: Pain in one joint
Acute gout typically presents as the sudden onset of severe joint pain with redness, warmth and swelling in one joint, usually the big toe, that frequently begins at night or after mild trauma, and completely improves in 7-10 days.
Over years to decades, chronic gout can develop with a decrease in the severity of pain, and increase in the number of joints involved and the duration of the pain.

In brief: Attacks in joints
The most common symptoms of gout are attacks of pain, redness, heat and swelling in joints.
Attacks most commonly affect a single joint, the most common of which is the base of the first toe. Multiple joints are sometimes affected. The attacks usually last about a week, with full recovery. Other potential complications of gout which may cause symptoms are kidney stones and lumps under the skin.
