Sheetrock! I had it lurking at the back of my mind. It’s been too long since I watched Ty and the gang on EM:HE. Bad analogy anyway.

My summary is this: You’ve had a bad experience with allopurinol. It’s right to stop allopurinol if a rash shows. There are alternatives. If you don’t want other medicines, then diet might be right for you.

But, you must continue with monthly uric acid monitoring.

Obviously, I’m taking a remote view of your situation. But, the most likely explanation is your recent pains are a result of old uric acid crystals dissolving. It’s vital to continue that process to save further damage to your body, and continue your recovery process. That means keeping uric acid below 5.

I’m intrigued to know more about your gout diet. Let’s hope your advisers on that are better than your doctors.
