Aspirin can cause hyperuricemia. So in the context of gout, I would suggest stopping this. There is also some concern that spironolactone may also increase this so you call and check with your doctor if any alternative to these drugs can be given. A check your uric acid level; if it's high then probably this is the cause and you need to focus on this, i.e. stop Aspirin, avoid prolonged fasting and avoid foods high in urate especially seafood. You can also talk to your doctor to increase the dose of your gout drugs if it's still elevated and also to check for other possible reasons of high rate. However, if urate is normal and if indicated, they must also consider other causes of joint pain. There are a lot of other causes that can give you joint pain, so this can also be discussed.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
