It looks like 35mg might be too low. I have never taken that drug myself so I don’t know what taking an insufficient dose would feel like but people are often told to take insufficient doses of colchicine and the problem with that is that, while it does help, it doesn’t stop the flare.
The reco about waiting 2-3 weeks is old-fashioned anyway but how long will you have to wait for that unending flare to be cleared? The main risk I think isn’t the flare going into overdrive so much as moving from one place to the next and lasting way too long… which isn’t much of a risk in your case seeing that it’s already happening.
