How long does it take for Gout to go away?

The attacks and pain can last for days or weeks depending on the severity of the gout. The answer is not so simple.

We recommend to look for informations on the American College of Rheumatology, a professional membership organization committed to improving the care of patients with rheumatic disease and advancing the rheumatology subspecialty. You can find there many symptoms and treatments for gout, tips for prevention of gout, gout treatment, and many useful information you will need.

Generally, joint pain begins to subside after 12 to 24 hours of treatment with colchicine or home remedies and disappears within 3 to 7 days. So, the attack will last from a few days to a few weeks. The first attacks are shorter and often less intense than the following ones.

If left untreated, the duration and frequency of gout attacks tend to increase, and the disease may even become chronic. The continued presence of uric acid crystals in and around the joint can lead to destruction of the joint and soft tissue. As gout is a progressive disease, if you do not control your uric acid level below 5 mg/dl, you can expect more intense and more often gout attacks.
