Gout is a metabolic disorder characterised by a deposition of uric acid salts (especially sodium biurate) in connective tissues, like cartilage of joint/s. In an acute attack, the affected joint becomes red, swollen and excruciatingly painful. The joint of the big toe is most commonly affected but other small joints (of fingers, ankles, wrists) are not immune to the disorder.
Check if most symptoms of any of these remedies match with most of your symptoms:
Aconite 30 : For a sudden, violent attack of gout giving rise to restlessness and acute fear, the patient feeling he is about to die. Pain in the affected joint is so acute that the person tosses about in agony, not being able to bear even light touch or pressure.
Arnica 30 : For gout in which the affected joint develops a sore, beaten-up sensation. The patient cannot tolerate the joint being touched.
Belladonna 30 : The affected joint is red, swollen, hot and excruciatingly painful, sensitive to least touch, pressure or motion. Rest and cold compresses seem to relieve pain.
Bryonia 30 : Gout with red, swollen and hot joint which is exceedingly painful. Pain gets aggravated with slightest motion, forcing the patient to keep still. Symptoms get worse from warmth (weather, food/drinks) but better by absolute rest, firmly bandaging the joint, pressing (massaging) the joint or by lying on it.
Colchicum 30 : For gout that moves from one joint to another. Pain is so severe that the patient can't bear even light touch. Joint-pain is worse by slightest motion (like Bryonia), at night and in cold, damp weather but better by rest and application of dry heat.
Eupatorium perl 30 : Indicated for gouty arthritis of left great toe that recurs every third or seventh day and is accompanied by headache. There is a feeling of soreness and broken bones in the whole body. The joint-pain is worse from motion, pressure or exposure to cold air.
Lycopodium 30 : For chronic gout mainly affecting joints of the right side of the body (e.g., right big toe). There is aching pain in the affected joint, worse in the evening from 4 to 8 p.m. Pain is also worse after a period of inactivity (e.g., on awakening from sleep) and from warmth or pressure but better from cold applications and movement of the affected joint.
Urtica urens 30 : For gout from eating shell-fish. Useful in acute gout because it facilitates elimination of uric acid from the body. Gout is associated with violently itching skin-rashes. Sometimes, joint-pain and skin-rashes occur alternately. Joint-pain is worse from touch, pressure and cold applications.
