Knowing that certain acidic foods and drugs like ASA may trigger gout attacks, can withdrawal from Nexium (which, during rebound at least, should elevate gastric acid levels) provide a similar trigger? I was in the final stages of Nexium cessation, was also on low-dose ASA and was likely dehydrated when my first gout attack occured. Perfect storm?

What are you talking about withdrawal from nexium? Final stages of cessation? Who told you you had to wean off of it? Of course the acid in your stomach increases without nexium, but that shouldn't effect gout. You're not getting the acid in your stomach in your blood and that's where it would have to be to effect gout.
