Are there certain foods known to increase or decrease RA symptoms? I am fairly strict paleo, but continue to experience pretty severe pain. are there foods that I should be / should not be eating?

I have both fibro and RA and cut out both about over a year ago and did see noticeable improvements. I have started to think that sugar of any kind even fruit may trigger.

I don't have RA, but I do have clicky joints and joint tenderness sometimes and CUT OUT NIGHTSHADES.

I never thought I was sensitive to tomatoes until I actually cut them out and experienced awesome benefits.

Diary and eggs seem to give me all kinds of hell.

SOMETIMES chicken will inflame me, but I have no idea what's going on there because I always buy my chicken from the same place and while sometimes I'm totally fine with it, sometimes it gives me a lot of pain. I don't know why.

I have arthritis in my foot and am thinking of cutting eggs, dairy and nightshades, things I love and eat a lot of, as well as cutting fruits because of the fructose. Be careful with electrolyte supplements. I had to quit powdered magnesium and potassium supplements (pretty close to the DV at that) because of heart palpitations.

I am 30 and have had extremely painful arthritis in my hands for the last 4 weeks. I had a couple weeks where I fell off the paleo wagon before the flair up. Now considering removing eggs - even though it is my main breakfast food - because of everything I am reading about arthritis and eggs. Also cutting out nightshades and dairy. I do a magnesium supplement every night, so I don't think it is related to that.

I don't have arthritis but I do have fibromyalgia. I'm currently playing with cutting out gluten and dairy by going paleo. From what I've heard from others with fibro, cutting out those are key. Although Saturday I had a few gluten free cookies as a treat and woke up the next day in terrible pain. Starting to think that sugar itself might be a trigger :(

Omega 6 and magnesium-defficiency are known for increasing inflammation. About 80% of the dutch people has an magnesium intake that is below the recommended daily intake. For paleo people that is probably better but our agriculture production suffers magnesium defficiencies itself. I found myself on a magnesium deffciency after 3 months paleo.

Repairing magnesium deficiency can be problematic: the best and cheapest method is probably trandermal by making a saturated dead-sea salt foot bath . No joke or placebo, it is probably the fastest, safest and cheapest way to correct a magnesium defficiency. You can reuse the saturated solution (about 300 grams / liter).

Diary is high in calcium and increases magnesium excretion (and thus lowers magnesium concentration in the body). Eggs are high in omega 6.
