Certainly makes sense nobody that previous deposits become unstable during the taking of Allopurinol and that perhaps physical activity or accidents can be a trigger.I`ve been a keen goer to the gym for the past year(twice a week),mainly the cable machines,with the hands doing most of the work,so it is possible that this could have caused the uric acid deposit instability/release in the hand.Needless to say the gym work will have to wait a while and also have a rethink.
Haven`t discussed colchine or corticosteroids with doctor yet,but will do,as you say,nasty side-effects can occur if large doses of ibuprofen used for too long.
