Hello
Thanks for the query to H.C.M. Forum.
It was mere co incidence that in your case uric acid level raises and you feel pain.
In my opinion the reason of pain in both testis were due to tuberculosis ( extra pulmonary tuberculosis ) and this caused tubercular epididymitis .
AKT 4 ingredients are pyrizinamide , ethmbutol, isoniadize , rifampicin ( 750, 800, 300, 450 mg respectively ) and your treating doctor is right .
In such type of cases usually I advised this treatment for 6 months .
So consult and deal accordingly as advised by your treating doctor.
Good luck.
