An acute attack of gout is an overwhelming insult the joint and some residual swelling might not be unexpected as your body tries to deal with the last remnants of uric acid. For persistent sufferers, the condition never fully resolves and that is often referred to a “chronic gout.”

As long as there’s no pain, there’s not much point to analgesics. To relieve the swelling faster, try to sleep with your leg raised…same for Telly watching or reading.
