Thank you for this interesting question and I recommend you discuss it further with your doctors
">doctor. Vitamin C is an essential part of our diet, and is vital to be able to live and survive. In the absence of Vitamin C, your body would be unable to repair itself and would eventually succumb to malnutrition, infection, or other chronic problems. One of the classic examples of this is scurvy, which was rampant among sailors at some times in the history of the world. This led to the English navy prescribing a ration of citrus to each of its sailors at one point. For that reason, it is unlikely that Vitamin C per se is causing your problem, but rather something else. For example, it could be that there is something in the supplemental form of Vitamin C that you are taking that is interacting with your body, or it could be the packaging of the vitamin that you are receiving. All of that can be changed, as there are many ways to get this vitamin (with many doctors feeling that vitamin supplements are not as healthy as a well balanced diet that includes these things). If you are having joint pain
