Gout can begin stone: Yiu may not have gout but gout can begin wiht kidney stones a nd 10 years later gout attacks. Is your stone a uric acid stone or a calcium stone with a uric acid center. The nerve pain is another issue that needs to be clarified. One uric acid level is not enough to diagnose gout. Gout is best diagnosed by finding urate crystals in the joint.
