Im a 25 year old female, I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis when I was 19 and have taken 1600mg of ibuprophen a day, a mixture of disease modifying drugs and now I inject anti TNF drugs. I am still in pain everyday. The ibuprophen allows me to move each day, go to work and live a fairly active lifestyle, without it I would not be able to do so. However, I know that being on that much ibuprophen is not healthy living.
My sister and brother in law have been on the primal diet for about 8 months and swear by it. They are feeling much healthier and I have never seen them look so good. They really believe that this way of living could help with my RA and told me to get the books and just try it for at least 3 months to see how it goes, I have ordered the books and am starting today!!
I was just wondering if there were any RA success stories and for some encouragement that this could actually help me, it is hard to believe when for so many years the pain has taken over.
