Sorry about your swelling. One day attack? You are one lucky chap. My attacks before allopurinol were a minimum of two weeks, I’ve been on allopurinol for 3 months now and am enduring another horrible attack that has lasted about 10 days and still ongoing.

My advice would be to check your UA levels first before starting any treatment and work from there but I am no doctor.
