Hi, I'm recently diagnosed and am trawling through the internet looking at research. It appears that there is very little under the sun that does not cause RA or trigger flair ups...to the point I feel as though everyone should be living in a bubble. It's impossible to avoid everything that is suggested through different research so I was wondering if you wouldn't mind sharing your opinions on what causes your own flare ups.
I've noticed increased pain in my hands after eating chocolate, I'm drawn to the idea of avoiding the chemicals they use in mass farming and will try to eat organic if possible. Not eating the 'nightshade' vegs (mushrooms, potatoes, tomatoes, etc) sounds awful to me as it contains the bulk of my present diet.
Looking forward to your ideas and tips.
