How high is HIGH?: Are you diagnosed with gouty arthritis or just HIGH uric acid levels. The UTI itself is NOT the cause of several things you mention such as the hoarseness of your voice and probably not the tingling. However, the medication you're taking could be causing the tingling and in a real stretch possibly joint pain/stiffness. High Uric Acid could be associated with your joint pain and twitching.
