See details: Unless you have severe pain and swelling, you do not have gout. It you do not have gout, then there is no reason to treat a mildly elevated uric acid of only 7.3 mg/dl. Look for other causes.

Gout: Most likely cause of increased uric acid with joint pain. Indomethacin is the drug of choice to treat acute gout attacks.
