I've recenlty been diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis and have turned into a walking pharmacy, which I hate, with little relief from the pain and swelling. Apparently the meds take some time for results to be evident. Right now, I'm taking plaquenil and methotrexate. While not strictly primal, since starting to follow MDA 3 years ago, I've drastically reduced my intake of grains, sugar and processed foods. I also started exercising more regularly and was feeling healthy and fit. I was rarely sick and thought my immune system to be pretty tough. This diagnosis came as a complete shock. I'd be interested to know of other MDA followers who have RA and how you are managing it.
