I have had several years of issues "diagnosed as pseudo-gout" (calcium build up/swelling), and after a recent swelling episode, and visit to a hospital, I was prescribed allopurinol which seems specifically directed at "maintenance" of uric acid/gout. Is this a logical medication for treatment of pseudo-gout?
