Don't you kind of already have that? Isn't gout ammonia crystals? It's the shape that makes them hurt. They're real pointy.

Pretty close. Gout is crystals of uric acid. They can form pretty much anywhere in the body, but usually do so in joints subject to stress - like the stress of walking. Hence the big toe. And yes, they're pointy, sharp, and painful.

I'm pretty sure drinking urine would greatly exacerbate the problem.
