    I too have experienced similar problem, I decided to experiment with high dose Vitamin C to address other health issues. I did not want to consume 'fillers' etc that may be associated in some tablet formulations so opted for Pure Vitamin C power, Ascorbic Acid. I took 2500mg daily for a week or two and am now experiencing the most horrendous gout symptoms!! I have never suffered from this before. A uric acid blood test has shown a massive drop though this apperaes to be a rouge result (484mmol down to 0.44mmol!!) so am having re tested and will update. I have in the last two weeks also had stents as a heart procedure , this may be related to blood chemistry upset (and newly experienced 'gout')
