What are the symptoms of pseudogout?

ANSWER

The symptoms of pseudogout include:

  • Sudden, intense joint pain
  • Swollen joint that's warm to the touch
  • Red or purple skin around the joint
  • Severe tenderness around the joint (even the slightest touch or pressure may bring extreme pain) These symptoms are similar to those of other diseases, especially gout, which is caused by a buildup of uric acid. They also mimic those of rheumatoid arthritis or osteoarthritis.
