Does anyone have this rare inflammatory disease? If so how do you deal with the pain and still function every day? I would love some advice.

Thank you

Hello I have this condition the way I deal with the pain is raking Turmeric
I also changed my diet to only eating anti inflammotory foods. No Caffeine
Beef in moderation
Pork in moderation
I mainly eat chicken and turkey.
No sugar.

A gluten free diet can help also.

Starches I only eat brown rice and if potatoes a small portion.

Whole grain cereals
Beans are great to I have done alot of research. Changing my diet and taking Turmeric has helped alot

Anti inflammatory is the key to keeping this rare disease at bay.
eating junk food and stress Causes flares as well as eating sugar and drinking sodas.

The antinflammatory diet also helps to stay regular.

Im all about natural I only take medicine when needed.

Hope this helps
