Warfarin is a complicating factor, and vitamin K2 should be taken (which should not affect INR). If you dig deep enough, you'll find that these "rat poison" drugs increase, rather than lower, the possibility of blood clots.
I would try to follow Pauling's basic recommendations, including high vitamin E, but add the magnesium and vitamin K2 and see if the pain is still consistent.
Is supplementing magnesium a must while mega dosing vc? I take a prenatal vitamin as is but should I be adding extra magnesium on top of that?
Magnesium is the 11th most abundant element by mass in the human body; its ions are essential to all living cells, where they play a major role in manipulating important biological polyphosphate compounds like ATP, DNA, and RNA. Hundreds of enzymes thus require magnesium ions to function. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magnesium
