I thought that the food was causing my arthritis. After going 90 days without all the foods (about 20 including wheat, eggs, milk, etc.) on my IGG list, I now think that the disease causes the allergies. My swelling didn't go down at all, but I felt better. However, I had to keep rotating the foods that I could eat because I started feeling badly when eating a food that I wasn't rotating. I suspect that my body was just creating an allergy to whatever I was "overeating." I hope that makes sense. Truthfully, I'm very curious about the connection of food and my seronegative arthritis. I have an appointment with an allergist on this topic next week to go over what I think I experienced. If I learn anything helpful, I'll post it.
