Thank you for asking at ehealthforum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Hyperuricemia may cause dizziness or it might be a separate entity. Get evaluated for the cause of this hyperuricemia and take some antivert for the dizziness. If does not respond a complete vestibular assessment would be needed to rule out central or peripheral causes of dizziness.

Get a rheumatologist for these uric acid levels.

I hope it helps. stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and can not be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.

Take care
