I skimmed through this thread and may have missed it but has anyone provided a comprehensive list of nightshades/foods to avoid when one's experiencing joint pain and stiffness? I recently got a new, physical job and my body's just wrecked. What's even worse is that this arthritis/tendinitis/whatever-the-fuck in both my feet and hands (with a smattering everywhere else) is making it so, so much harder than it has to be...not to mention the INTENSE mid-back pain as the shift goes on. My hips, knee, and shoulder occasionally hurt, but right now it's my feet and hands that are bothering me the most. My arms are also falling asleep and aching at night which keeps me awake. WTF!? I need this to go away ASAP.
I'm considering a meat, dairy, and fruit (mostly berries) diet. I'll try to get some green leafy veggies into my fruit smoothies where I can but I loath most of them so it's a challenge. Would that not be a relatively anti-joint pain/inflammation strategy?
