how can you treat gout at home before visiting a doctor

  1. 1.     How Can You Treat Gout at Home Before Visiting a Doctor?  
  2. 2.     • Gout is a sudden attack that hits you anytime without any early warning signs. Usually it strikes when you sleeping soundly in the middle of a cold peaceful night. • Out of nowhere you feel a sudden pain in your big toe, ankle or knee as if someone hit it with a big hammer.  
  3. 3.     • In some cases, the condition is so severe that the victim cannot even walk to the kitchen to get a glass of water and take some aspirin. • Aspirin might help to relieve the headache that you are having as a result of not enough sleep or worry over the swollen joint, but aspirin has no effect on getting rid of the burning pain at the affected joints.  
  4. 4.     • Then you might think of using some ice bag or soak the whole foot in the a bucket of icy cold water hoping that will somehow numb away the intense pain. It works! • But after thirty minutes or so when the freezing effect is gone, your nerves are back to action sending all those pain signals to your brain, again.  
  5. 5.     • The same temporary effect applies to warm water soaking too. When soak your painful feet inside the slightly below boiling temperature of hot water, you will feel a sudden soothing sensation that makes you temporarily forget about the pain you had before. When the temperature drops, the pain signals will soon override the comforting signals produced by the warm water. As mention in my previous article, it is better to use warm water instead of cold water if you do not want the gout condition to become worse in the future.  
  6. 6.     • If you are far away from the nearest hospital, maybe you are on a vacation or what. • You can try the baking soda treatment to temporarily lower down the uric acid that causes the gout attack. You must also drink plenty of water to help flush away those excessive uric acids.  
  7. 7.     • Take one tea spoon full of baking soda (or chemically known as sodium bicarbonate) and mix it with a glass of water and drink it all with an empty stomach. • After 30 minutes or so, take another glass of baking soda water to further boost the neutralization of uric acid.  
  8. 8.     • DO NOT consume more than 4 tea spoons of baking soda in a day! If you have some other health complications such as hypertension or on certain course of medication, baking soda is not for you. • Remember, this is just a temporary remedy and you must seek proper medication as soon as possible.
