Gluten Intolerance and Rheumatoid Arthritis!Submitted by The Pen on Tue, 02/04/2014 - 02:06
As some of you know I have been suffering from a major flare-up of what my Rheumatologist, even though he cannot diagnose, presumes is a rheumatic/arthritic episode. I have had a few of these major episodes in my lifetime, starting at the age of 5. This time has been different. I have been literally crippled in my hands and ankles and arms to the point of not being able to pick up my 11 month old daughter, brush my teeth or change my son's bed sheets. I stumbled upon an article regarding gluten intolerance and rheumatoid arthritis and was floored!
Today marks my fourth day of being completely Gluten-free. I have been Vegan for almost 3 years and this added change has presented some obstacles, but obstacles worth hurdling. I have provided some links below for those interested and those who may be afflicted with this autoimmune condition.
Peace and Love always.
