My arthritis pain seems to be remitting big time.

Well it's been over four weeks since I quit eating starch (with a couple small mistakes) and it's paying off. My pain levels are about 2 of 10, whereas before I was regularly hitting 9 of 10. Vicodin intake...way down! Usually I take a dose every twelve hours now, instead of every four hours a month ago.
It's so nice to be awake, clear headed, happy, and at two pills a day, relatively pain free. My knees still act up but that throbbing, never ending ache that felt like my existence is gone. I want to do things, paint, cook, play games. My muscles are still so weak from years of flares but at least now I can repair a bit. Cutting out yeast (allergic) and starch (HLA B27) was the best thing I ever did.
