Chronic Inflammation and What to do?

This might be an odd question, but here goes:

Recently, I have gained about 10lbs. At first, I thought it might be eggs, as I had recently reintroduced them to my diet. A few weeks egg-free and no change.

My diet hasn't changed and I use fit day to track. I train often (I am a semi-professional athlete) and have been having digestive issues as well, but my main issue is this:

I seem to have chronic inflammation in my legs and lower back. The reason I don't think this is simply weight gain is that I am lean everywhere else. I am vascular in my lower legs and up my arms, I even have a coveted tummy vein.

Things I am going to try are limiting my bacon and coffee (as I heard they can be inflammatory) but has anyone else had anything similar, if so, what did you do? I am not opposed to natural remedies (curcumin etc).

I was going to suggest curcumin/tumeric. Also, try swapping coffee for green tea and def drop the bacon- high in O-6 and who knows what else dependin the kind you're buying. Eat some monounsaturates like avocado, almonds, etc. Those are good for almost everything!

you probably need to rest or at least switch up your training to give your muscles some time to recover
