May - 2016
We all look forward to the summer. Nothing feels better than the warm sun on your skin, doing outdoor activities with family and friends. It is important to be aware, however, that sun exposure has both positive and negative effects.
May is a time for spring cleaning, spring flowers and of course Mother's Day.
You wake up to a throbbing pain in your big toe. You feel like it is on fire. Even the touch of the bedsheet drives pangs of agony to your swollen, hot, tender joint. There’s little doubt; you have gout. Gout is inflammation of a joint caused by uric acid crystals.
