I've had two MRI scans in the past 20 or so years. I'm also talking NHS here.

Jump to new posts Re: MSG causing flare ups by FormerFoodie @ Yesterday at 06:42 PM

I haven't run a perfectly controlled experiment to isolate MSG as the triggering factor, but I suspect that it triggers a NASTY reaction in me. Early in my days exploring diet (before I got strict with NSD and no-sugar) I had a crazy unsettling ex

I generally avoid fruits because I just feel better when I don't eat any sugar. However, I do use lemons and limes in my cooking. I enjoy high quality oils and find that they are a nice way to break up the monotony of 'vanilla' olive oil. Generall

Sorry to hear about your mood swings and irritability but congrats on starting to see some benefits. I started NSD in spring of 2009. When my progress plateaued, I took another step and went no-sugar. Like you, I was super cranky, had a short fuse

My last blood tests also showed high iron levels - ferritin etc - and so my GP had further tests to check whether I had haematomachrosis (various other spellings available). I didn't, but he thinks I am a carrier for the gene. He kept looking at me,

I would drink only fresh squeezed juices. I used: apples, pineapples, greens, carrots, beets, ginger root, tumeric root, oranges, and grapefruits. I did not try to juice things that didn't taste great to me. I only used the juice to keep me from brea

There is additional scientific rationale for the exploration of bisphosphonates is AS. These drugs, as sythetic analogs of pyrophosphates, may interfere with the process of calcification of entheses that occurs in AS.

Jump to new posts Re: Intermittent Back Pain by Boroboy @ 01/19/17 05:33 PM

I've suffered from constant pain from the age of 21. At different levels, dependent on my current treatment. Many a time I've sat up & walked forwards like a crab. Sitting on hard wooden chairs, probably the worst for me. I'm still waiting for it

Jump to new posts Re: Rib pain (not at front) by Boroboy @ 01/19/17 05:29 PM

Yes I did, prior to my biologic days. The pain was that intense at times I had to freeze in the standing position. Couldn't move or breath for a few seconds, due to the pain felt at the rear ribcage area. I've also had it bad in the breast bone area,

I've tried eradication diets in the past, found that they actually made me feel worse. For me a healthy balanced diet is the best option. Although I do realise some diets seem to work well for others. It's a case of matching the best treatment for th

Cross contamination? What does this mean? Good luck to you too! I am on my way to reintroduce some food after a whole year in pain. Almond butter and some dairy, second day that I tried some molasses. Maybe it is too much but I cannot stand the diet

If you eat a well-balanced diet, then no supplements are "essential." If you don't eat much fish, then you might consider fish oil supplements. If you rarely get outside or live far north, then you might consider Vitamin D. --Greg
