dear patient.
Febuget has febuxostat which is a medicine which blocks the activity of xanthine oxidase and prevents uric acid build up.

Normal Uric acid levels are 2.4-6.0 mg/dL (female) and 3.4-7.0 mg/dL (male). Normal values will vary from laboratory to laboratory. Also important to blood uric acid levels are purines.

So your uric acid is on the higher side.
This medication is contraindicated for acute gout and generally given for chronic and intergout periods.

YOur heal pain may be a due to worsening of stenosis due to high uric acid which will probably subside once you take the drug regularly for 2 weeks at least.

nausea and gastric unease is common with this medication.

Hence i suggest that you continue to take this medication and if the pain is severe take ibuprofen 800mg stat. ALso and i cant stress this enough please discuss the side effects of febuget with your doctor and inform him/her about you taking ibuprofen
