(Natural News) A form of inflammatory arthritis, gout occurs due to high levels of uric acid in the blood. The acid, which is a byproduct from when the body breaks down purines in foods, causes needle-like crystals to form in a joint. This results in pain and discomfort, typically in the ankles, knees and toes....

CONCLUSION: OUD-hospitalizations increased in all 5 musculoskeletal diseases studied, but the rate of increase differed. Awareness of these OUD-hospitalization trends in 5 musculoskeletal diseases among providers, policy-makers and patients is important. Development and implementation of interventions, policies and practices to potentially reduce OUD-associated impact in people with rheumatic diseases is needed.

AbstractA 61 ‐year‐old male patient with a 13‐year history of untreated gout presented to our hospital with pain in the left knee. Physical examination revealed inflammatory changes in the left knee, large subcutaneous nodules in bilateral first metatarsophalangeal joints, and enlargement of the left Achil les tendon.

Pain is a fundamental feature of inflammation. The immune system plays a critical role in the activation of sensory neurons and there is increasing evidence of neuro-inflammatory mechanisms contributing to painful pathologies. The inflammasomes are signaling multiprotein complexes that are key components of the innate immune system. They are intimately involved in inflammatory responses and their activation leads to production of inflammatory cytokines that in turn can affect sensory neuron function. Accordingly, the contribution of inflammasome activation to pain signaling has attracted considerable attention in recent ye...

Abstract This review is devoted to rheumatologic diseases mainly characterized by different types of arthritis. They may involve also different organs, including the kidney, but renal disease is more frequently caused by the nephrotoxicity of drugs to relieve pain or to interfere with the pathophysiology of the underlying disease. Rheumatoid arthritis is the prototype of arthropathies. This autoimmune disease mainly attacks joints, tendons and ligaments but can also involve internal organs including the kidney. Psoriatic arthritis is a complex disease in which psoriasis, a chronic inflammatory disease, is associat...

AbstractA 66 years old Caucasian male presented with left elbow pain and swelling of 1 week duration. He denied any preceding trauma or fevers. He had a past history of diabetes mellitus, hypertension, hyperlipidemia and chronic kidney disease. 5 years ago, he was diagnosed with gout when he had podagra, which was treated with indomethacin. He did not take any urate ‐lowering medication. He reported multiple episodes of gout every year, mostly in the feet. On exam, he had swelling, tenderness, warmth, erythema and decreased range of motion of the left elbow. Synovial fluid aspiration was performed, and revealed monosodiu...
