I have been on the elimination diet now for 2 months and have found that nightshade vegys really bother me.. I have to try introducing them again to make sure that is truly what made me ache all over the next day. Of course, I don't want to experience the pain and awful day of hardly being able to move. But one must be sure , especially cause I love tomatoes, and a bowl of mild chili sent me into a flair - a bad one.
Oh, Eggs also, whew that really hurts, since I have a few pet chickens, it's amazing how I used to eat eggs everyother day. I eliminated them for 6 weeks , then had a big breakfast and whew I can't believe how awful I felt. I'm gonna miss them eggs. I just give them away now, but I still love my chickens. Here is their coop.
Here is a pic of my rheumi hands, I usually have skinny fingers.
During my last phases of Chemo, my head and arms swelled up. They kinda thought it was water retention and a bit normal but usually happens in the lower half of the body. Here it was inflammation my CRP was off the charts. That's how this all began. I will blog more about my Breast cancer journey a little here and there, even being on the other side for 6 months now, the subject is still tender and emotional.
