Thank you Carol, for the extra information. I’m still a bit confused about your exact timeline. But, I’m going to assume that your uric acid blood test result is after you started taking allopurinol. That result shows that your uric acid in your blood is safe. But, you will still be at risk of gout flares for a few weeks. That risk will reduce as allopurinol does it’s job.

It’s great that allopurinol is working for you. Just be patient. Also, keep getting tested for uric acid at least once a year.

As I say, you should recover completely from gout in a few weeks. If you need help with gout pain during this time, please ask.
