Weaving my way around Rheumatoid Arthritis.

Day 12

leave a comment »


Had a lovely massage yesterday. Today my neck is still stiff. Think I’ve been leaning my head on my left hand when using the computer. Caught myself doing it several times this morning, so now to change my posture.

Woke with dry eyes and flashes, and had a big new floater, which resolved after a few hours. Disturbing, but all seems good now.

Food: potatoes, onion, celery, melon, chicken, tuna –  not very hungry today

20 oz H2O

Stats for the day

Sleep: 9:30-6:30 (up to pee)

All joints behaving except RT pointer finger is jammed again.

Diarrhea around noon – drat.

Weight: 180.4 Lost 1.6 pounds. Haven’t seen that number since the last prednisone in December. (Starting weight at beginning of AIP 182)

Edema Treatment: R2D2 – 1 hour left leg; 1 hour right arm

Exercise: zip – too hot

Meds & Supplements:



Oral Sinus Probiotic

1 prescript-assist probiotic

5,000 D3

L Glutamine 5gm

Foods eliminated to date:

Dairy, coffee, legumes, seeds, chocolate, seed based spices, rice and other grains, oils (except avocado, coconut and EVOO), nuts, sugar, some nightshades and gums (guar, carrageenan, etc.).

For now, I’m keeping tomatoes, potatoes and peppers, since I have tons of them in my garden, and corn.
