Jean, it certainly sounds like you are on the right track. Because, everything you say supports the usual occasional gout symptoms during the first few months of allopurinol (Allopurinol Medication: Why It Hurts To Get Rid Of Gout).

So, I think the best thing is to arrange another uric acid test. Because that will confirm your uric acid levels remain low enough to dissolve old crystals. Then, you know that your gout recovery is working OK. You might continue with occasional symptoms for a few more months. But, you should find that gout attacks get less frequent, and less intense.

After that, you should still get tested once a year to make sure your uric acid stays safe.
