Gout and Fibromyalgia Discussions

In this video series:

Steven Stanos, MD introduces his panel of experts for the Gout and Fibromyalgia Discussions.
Risk factors for gout include obesity, age, and decreased renal function. Often allodynia is the chief complaint when gout affects the large toe. Although gout can affect other joints, the incidence is lower.
Relieving the pain of the acute attack and reducing the incidence for gout becoming chronic are the foremost goals of treatment.
Calvin Brown, MD defines fibromyalgia as "wide spread" centrally mediated pain. He discusses the diagnosis, treatment, and research into many aspects of this challenging disorder.
