Gout mainly strikes middle-aged men, but occasionally occurs in younger men as well. Gout also afflicts middle-aged women, but that is much more rare. Gout frequently strikes the base of the big toe, but can also affect the small joints of the hands, knees, ankles, wrists or elbows. The first few gout attacks usually affect only one joint and last a few days. Symptoms slowly disappear, the joint goes back to normal and there is no sign of a problem until the next attack.
