I tried the pepper capsule supplements at each meal. Most of the time the “heartburn” sensation got eliminated. I eat spicy foods too which I think help.

Sorry to hear of your health issues as a result of the Atkins Diet. Did you eat a lot of fried foods?

Hi, I know cherries or cherry juice is recommended for diagnosis of gout. It helps my uncle. Need to be cautious with diabetes though.

Hi @steeldove, my husband and I started the keto diet 2 weeks ago. Family and friends gave it good reviews so we wanted to see our results. It is a difficult diet to maintain for me because I am a pescatarian but my husband loves it so far. One of our friends said he lost 25lbs. While on the diet he had no tremors which he gets periodically. Unfortunately, after stopping the keto diet he noticed the tremors came back. Thank you for the interesting reports. It is too soon for us too tell if the diet is helping with pain. We have neuropathy and a torn rotator cuff in the shoulder. I will keep you posted on our results of the keto diet.

Hi @arlinebringhurst, @johnbishop. Regarding the chronic cough, take a look at the current medications being taken. Some medications list cough as a side effect. My mother had a cough for years and would tell me at first it was allergies to pollen, then g-acid-reflux disease. Lastly it was poison ivy. She made no sense so I looked up each and every medication and sure enough several had a cough side effect.

@somisgirl, thank you for your response. I am currently not using any creams. Good to know about DMSO. Thanks again for the information.

Hi @tigreyes2004. If you can take milk of magnesia and prune juice try mixing a dose of MOM and an equal part of warm prune juice. That should help.

Hi @somisgirl. I have decreased my caffeine intake and agree it does lessen the pain for my neuropathy on my left leg. I am not a diabetic. I do not take any medications. I learn by trial and error to see what works best for me. I am also interested in taking the evening primrose oil. How much do you take in a day? I know you can increase the dose slowly. Glad you are feeling better and keep trying new things. Your efforts are certainly helping.
