Three things make me wonder if you were correctly diagnosed.
1.As I understand it it is not the blood as much as injecting a needle and pulling crystals to determine which of the 5 types of Cyrstaline (gout) diseases/syndromes you have
2. The fact that this is not just the toe but throughout your body.
3. The fact you have found no triggers!!!!!
May I suggest you might have one of the other crystaline diseases. "Gout"/uric acid is just one of them.
You may have CPPD/Calcium Pyrophosphate Dehydrate Sydrome(meaning it is less known so not yet fully figured out to be called 'disease'). Another name which I despise is pseudo-gout. Nothing pseudo-gout about it.
Seems you wrote in August. I do not know how to manage this site as looking many times this is the first time I saw your writing.
