Gout or not?

Big toe woke me up in middle of night throbbing like a toothache. Lasted couple days then ankle became little sore for few days then extremely sore. Could barely walk on it and only if I didn’t bend my foot. Like a really bad sprain. It lasted 6 days.

My uric acid level is 8 and now on allopurinol. However, with all this pain I have absolutely no swelling redness or heat of any kind. With my ankle one spot behind ankle little sore if I pushed on it but yet extreme pain if I tried to walk on it.

I just always read that gout always has swelling
