Thanks for writing to us.
The pain in the right knee with rise in uric acid levels can be due to gout. Taking the uric acid excreting drugs, anti inflammatory pain killers, decreasing intake of red meat and pulses will help in improvement of the symptoms.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
