Gout symptoms include sudden, severe pain and tenderness, redness, warmth and swelling, in the affected joints -- most commonly the big toe. The initial gout attack often occurs at night and is confused by many sufferers with a broken or dislocated toe. Even the weight of bed sheets on the swollen joint can cause excruciating pain.
