I’m so sorry to hear that mate. The attack I got in March really really punished me too. Even till this day I still feel some of the aftermath pain and have some inflammation and I tend to just ignore it and get on with it despite the rheumatologist seeing it and telling me to take 2 * 500micrograms of colchicine a day till it resides. No thanks. I’m on a pill detox for now.

Yep, believe me after starting allopurinol and the attack I got I certainly am aquatinted with how it all works. How do you mean more hardcore? Did you take a really high dose of febuxostat for a short period of time? Or was it that you just got really overconfident with diet? I’d like to know since I might be on the same drug as you in 3 weeks! 🙂

I figured 0.1 was a typo 🙂 Ah, that’s very interesting, So you got a little dip in haemoglobin too after starting febuxostat, by any chance did it recover?

oh and I forgot to mention with the slight increase in haemoglobin after what we think was because of stopping allopurinol my uric acid has spiked to 760ummol. It was never that high and always sat at 550-600 at most. I’m hoping it could just be that residuals from what was dissolving whilst on allopurinol?

A few questions there for you 🙂
