I have been on strict paleo for about three years. About four months ago I cut out starchy vegetables and went pretty low carb. My diet for the last month has been pretty balanced with a 1:1 omega ratio, because sardines and omega 3 rich eggs are a staple in my diet. The problem is I still get really inflamed with little activities. I will wrestle with my husband on the carpet and break out in rashes, or just reliving a simple itch on my neck will leave it looking red and swollen like I was attacked by a cat. Does any have a fix for this?

do you have some sort of autoimmune disorder? If you do, paleo won't cure anything and an inflammatory response is something you might have to live with. The paleo diet is one way to deal with inflammation, but it can only lessen its effects. exercise/ constant low intensity exercise will go along way for inflammation. Try walking everyday and when your home instead of sitting around do yard work or anything else that might require you to do a little work. Basically avoid sitting around for more than an hour, which might be unreasonable.

I've been off eggs for some time myself, and most paleo cookbooks and meal plans are very, very frustrating. Eggs every day, sometimes in more than one meal.
I like to bring a treat to a party or a dinner where I know there will be many things I can't eat, but it often seems like those recipe's ingredients start with 5 eggs. Flax and chia only go so far.
But seriously, you should try skipping the eggs for a while. It sucks, but you'll get used to having dinner for breakfast, and you'll either see a difference or you won't. Either way you will have more information than you have now.

I'm doing an experiment of no egg eating during a few days... have to say my inflammatory/arthritic like issues are getting a LOT better... hope is just coincidence as I love eggs :(
It was very difficult for me to make a connection between eggs and possible intolerance as I have been eating them all my life, but... I've also been having issues all my live so... you might want to do the experiment and see if there's something revealing to it.
I'm linking it more to possible Histamine intolerance rather than actual egg intolerance but don't know right now.
