I’m sorry to hear about your experiences.

Is there a reason why your rhumatologist hasn’t increased your allopurinol dose? as you could be going through what’s called gout hell where crystals are dissolving and reforming.

The reason I say this is because if your uric acid level is 6.1mg/dl you are literally in the worst possible gout recovery position to be in. Have a read of this: http://www.goutpal.com/9942/ouch-why-does-gout-recovery-hurt/

I’m no doctor and you should consult your rhumatologist first but it seems your allopurinol dose definitely needs upward adjustment.
