    So your suggestion would be to try for 60 days no dairy, wheat (is that all grains?), legumes and nightshades? Did you try this?
    Hi! I did, and it cured my joint pain. I had to walk with a cane sometimes, and after only a few weeks of auto-immune food elimination, I was running and jumping and telling everybody, not that they wanted to hear it. If you survive cancer, you're a hero. If you cure your arthritis, you're a quack. Go figure.

    I'm not suggesting you have that, I'm just saying that the boxes aren't that interesting.

    So yes, I have avoided these foods for some time. Is it working? It is hard to say. I have autoimmune illnesses, some of which are very scary. And yet I have what I call the "baby" version of every one. My life expectancy at this point for those illnesses is normal; I don't even have to take medication. Is it because I was going to have the baby version no matter what, or do I get the baby version because of my food? I won't be testing it by going back on wheat, that's for sure... I am very happy to be not dead.

    LOL isn't it so true though!!! I haven't gotten to the point of a cane but i've been hobbling around my condo tonight not able to put my left foot down fully because of the pain in the bottom of my heel. Nightshades...does that include sweet potatoes/yams? If I understand the list properly those a red peppers are the only nightshades I like and I can cut them out easily.

    Oh, I know you aren't suggesting I have fibromyalgia, it's just a scary thought considering I was always classified as "perfectly healthy".
    I am very happy you are not dead either! I have to admit I have been stubborn to make the switch (cutting out wheat, dairy etc) but I don't want something drastic to happen to make me wake up!

    Are you hyper mobile, or do you have joints that hyperextend in any way?

    Nightshades don't include sweet potatoes/yams, but they do include normal potatoes, eggplants, and tobacco (as well as the more obvious tomatoes, peppers, tomatillos, etc).

    I had arthritis-like pain that went away, too. I had pain from bone spurs in my right foot and ankle, which rarely bother me much now (but do occasionally result in spontaneous bruising). I also had joint inflammation and swelling that seemed to settle into one joint for a few months before moving to another. Once it was was in my right foot, and I had to be careful stepping when I stood up so as not to fall. Another time it was in a finger, etc. I also had pain from generalized inflammation and swelling of my feet.

    It's all gone except for limitations caused by still having the bone spurs. It makes me wonder if the inflammation I had all those years may have caused the bone spurs.

    I never gave up nightshades, just gluten.

    Ask to have your Uric acid levels tested. Gout can travel to different joints and it can also wax and wane. Its easy to rule out, just need to give some blood.

    Are you very bendy? Hypermobility syndrome aka EDS type 3 can cause that kind of pain (along with gut trouble and anxiety/depreSsion).
