Thanks for the reply!

I was given 1.2mg colchicine off the bat then 0.6mg twice a day since. Advil I think I was given 1000mg by the doc and I’ve been taking the max dose on the bottle since, 400mg every 6-8 hrs.

Assuming this is gout it sounds like allopurinol might be a good way to go. I’ll talk to my doc about it.

Another question I have is will gout get more painful with use of the limb? I’m using crutches but I noticed if I stand or walk on it (crutch assisted) even to the kitchen and back it gets more painful and inflamed.
