My early symptoms for what they were are in remission. I still have a swollen finger, but the generalised pain has gone. My ankles and knees are occasionally a bit achy, but my stiff hands in the morning have gone away. I can drive without discomfort and don't have to remove my shoes in the office.
So maybe it is luck, but my food intolerance test - £100 for Cerascreen showed a problem with egg yolks, wheat and oats. As soon as I stopped eating all these foods the pain subsided pretty quickly. There is also the more expensive York test which is more comprehensive.
I also took a bunch of other stuff such as Boswellia, Bicarbonate of Soda, Cod liver oil, black seed oil and very small amounts of Pregnenolone. But I think the foods were the trigger and giving them up caused remission.
So my question is of those who have taken food intolerance tests - how many have seen a degree of improvement as soon as they stopped the foods - and which foods are most commonly indicated. The consensus on the internet is somewhat skeptical of these tests, but for inflammatory arthritis I think they may be of great benefit.
