      Hi Kelly. Isn't it amazing how dense our heath care workers can be? I have one who I've seen 3 times in the past 4 weeks and he sees less than 10 patients. he acted like he has never seen me before. It's amazing. And then he argued with me about if the middle joints on my fingers were swollen or not. He insisted that they weren't. I haven't been able to wear my rings in almost a month because I can't get them over my joints. To me that's inflammed. his response, "Oh yeah I guess they are then." My response was nearly, "DUH!!!" but I held my tongue.

      Can I ask, have you ever tried an elimination diet? I have found success with eliminating dairy completely. I know that it was successfull because I haven't been on any medication for a month and a half and my sed rate went dwon with eliminating dairy. I've also started to eliminate gluten. It's harder tho. A lot of stuff has gluten hidden in it. It might be something worth exploring. I know several people with auto-immune diseases who have done this elimination diet with great success. If it's something you are interested in, mayeb I can help. It does take sacrifice and work but I have found that no amount of pain is worth the taste of cheese or icecream or graham crackers and milk, etc. Ya know that phrase "A momnet on the lips, a lifetime on the hips"? I look at it this way….."A momnet on the lips, a lifetime of pain, swelling, and misery."
