In brief: Unlikely.

But might be contributing.
Most common cause of high uric acid is genetics. A high uric acid level without symptoms is often of no significant consequences. The level may be affected a bit by diet. The candida / lyme / ic thing sounds fishy and very unlikely. Perhaps you have a more general underlying disorder.

In brief: Unlikely

The cause of ic/bps is unknown, however, explanations have dinclued: autoimmune disease, neurologic cause, mast cell theory, leaky lining theory, infection theory, and a theory of production of a toxic substance in the urine.
Other suggested etiological causes are neurologic, allergic, genetic, and stress-psychological. Uric acid is not likely to go up with probiotics or vegetable diet.
