Increased uric acid levels can be asymptomatic, but about 20% of patients experience inflammation of the joints due to the accumulation of uric acid crystals or is called gouty arthritis. Gouty arthritis can affect joints such as the big toe, ankle, knee, or elbow. Symptoms are accompanied by pain that occurs suddenly and is heavy at night. Other symptoms include joint stiffness, difficulty moving, redness, swelling, and joint deformation.
Complaints are severe in one side of the body is actually not specific to the condition of increased uric acid.

Sudden weakening of motor power on one side of the body should be suspected as a symptom of stroke. Stroke is brain damage caused by a decrease in oxygen supply due to a sudden blockage or rupture of blood vessels in the brain.
Symptoms due to nervous system disorders due to stroke that are often encountered include:
- Sudden weakness of one side of the body, where the patient can fall suddenly
- The face looks asymmetrical (one side of the face and the lips look lower)
- Speech disorder (speech disconnected or unable to speak words)
- visual impairment
- sensory disturbance
- Vomit spraying
- Change of consciousness
- Mental status disorders
We recommend that you consult with your doctor first to assess the perceived complaint and evaluate the possible causes. If it is indeed a stroke then rapid treatment is expected to provide better outcomes.
That's all, hope you can help
