What cause pain in joint uric acid?
Uric acid is produced from the natural breakdown of your body's cells and from the foods you eat. Most of the uric acid is filtered out by the kidneys and passes out of the body in urine. High levels of uric acid in the blood can cause solid crystals to form within joints. This causes a painful condition called gout .

What is the cause of kidney stones?
Most kidney stones are composed of uric acid, which is a byproduct of the digestion of protein. Kidneys filter uric acid out of the blood, and if the concentration of uric acid is too high, you can get a precipitation of uric acid into a solid form, since the solubility of uric acid is moderate, but not high. Solid uric acid is then a stone, a solid object inside the kidney, where it causes trouble until it passes out with the urine.
