For what little that’s worth, at one point when I was prescribed an inadequate dose of colchicine by a GP I got flareups which moved from one foot to the other and back every few days.
There are also other drugs besides the ones you mentionned which people use for gout symptoms. But maybe you can’t take them (your doctor ought to know your situation best).
Unless you couldn’t afford it or something, I think you should have had an appointment with a specialist earlier.
I hope you get better soon!
