In brief: Some

Anti-inflammatories such as Ibuprofen may help with the pain and swelling.
Make sure that you are able to take this safely. Cherry juice has been known as a natural remedy to ease and prevent attack. Howver, ultimately since this is a problem of either producing too much uric acid or not excreting it fast enough, you need to see your physician immediately. Avoid shell fish, peanuts and alcohol.

You should be on a uric acid lowering drug, such as allopurinol.
This is key! combining with with generic probenicid/colchicine once daily is an inexpensive alternative to colcrys. Of course a NSAID for pain is important.
