I endured pain in my hands, fingers for 6 years. Had tests for arthritis which were negative. It got so bad at night I couldn’t pull the sheets up over me in bed because my fingers would not bend. Nothing helped, until I monitored my eating habits.

I stopped eating everything that came in a can, tin, packet, or sauce bottle and started preparing my food from fresh. My fingers, hands, pain subsided. I then found this group, and found out I’m salicylates, amines, gluten, and dairy intolerant. The pain only returns if I mistakenly eat something I shouldn’t – Kerrie
