Weaving my way around Rheumatoid Arthritis.

Day 2 – Headache

with one comment



Took it easy yesterday, worked and went to bed early. I have a killer caffeine withdrawal headache this morning. Time and some peppermint oil seem to be easing the headache somewhat. Heartburn twice today – don’t know what’s causing it. “Rock” in my stomach all day.

Foods eliminated to date: Dairy, Coffee, Legumes, Seeds.


4 pork sausage, 2 eggs, EVOO, salt

popcorn, coconut oil, salt, nutritional yeast (hummmmm, is that legal?)

chocolate chips

corn on the cob with salt, baked chicken, rice, chicken broth


12 oz ginger tea

36 oz H2O with 1/4 cup black cherry juice

Sleep: 8-6 (pee at 4) woke to the sun

Stats for the day:

Balls of feet swollen – 2

Hands stiff – 2

Back is stiff, other joints behaving

morning- itchy ear canals, stuffy right sinus, nostril

Weight: 184   Starting weight 182    2 pound gain overnight

Edema Treatment:

3 hour in garden, mulching, weeding, digging potatoes – 10 gallons of purple Peruvians – back happier than yesterday

  1. Welcome back. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but chocolate has caffeine – and probably dairy unless you searched especially for dairy-free.
