Hi, thanks for writing to HCM. You have not mentioned about your age, body habitat and any comorbidities in the description. It is very unusual for the knee joints to get affected by gout
. It is preferable to maintain the levels of uric acid less than 6mg/dl. I dont think that gout is the cause for your problem in your knees.
I advise you to get xrays for both of your knees to see any arthritic changes. If xrays could not detect anything, then an MRI
scan may be needed to pick up any issues in your knee joints. Hope this helps
