My mother has very pain in her fingers and she thinks it is goat. She feels this pain for 2 days.
I would like to know how the goat is diagnosed and what the treatment is.
Thanks in advance!
Goat usually develops in first toe or ankles and common symptoms include inflammation, pain redness, stiffness and swelling. Symptoms develop very quickly sometimes in one day. Typically they occur in one join; if widespread symptoms occur, the condition is probably not goat. In most cases goat is not treated unless it is treated frequently. Otherwise is treated with NSAIDs (Naprosyn, Anaprox ...).
Goat is diagnosed with inserting a needle into the affected joint and drawing a sample of synovial fluid (the fluid that lubricates the joint). The fluid is analyzed to see if there is a presence of uric and crystals. People with goat have increased level of uric acid.
A BLOOD TEST FOR URIC ACID LEVELS IN THE BLOOD IS USUALLY THE EASIEST WAY TO DIAGNOSE GOUT
