After a rollercoaster of feeling really bad, then ok, then good then really really terrible....I think I've finally got back to a feeling of good. I have narrowed down my flares to SUGAR..... My absolute favorite thing!!!
See, I don't mind not eating corn or banana's or wheat..... I get my cheese fix from Goat cheeses. But the sugar... there's just nothing like a good decadent piece of cheesecake or a hunk of velvety milk chocolate. And the wine... it seems that what they say is true, it's full of sugar. Perhaps I should learn to drink vodka soda's for a treat? I like my unsweetened chocolate milk with stevia but it just doesn't fill that "treat" void.
I went a solid 6 months being super strict and not cheating. For the most part, I felt terrific. Then all of a sudden I really seemed to get off track. Anyway- I feel remotivated and strong. In fact, I'm afraid all these flares have caused some permanent damage to my feet.
To all my fellow RA sufferers.... do you have large ugly balls of inflammation on your heels, well more above your heels? This is new for me and I'm trying to figure out if it's RA related or perhaps injury from all the exercise that I do?? They are literally the size of big grapes and they are so sore. It really hurts to put on shoes.
Anyone have this??
