You would need to be more descriptive of the pain and source of it. I for example have a degenerative area of my lower disks. Lying flat used to cause me numbness and pain that made it a challenge every night to go to sleep. Fortunately I woke... (more)

Dear all, I am thinking about starting autoimmune protocol, but I am afraid I won't be able to be 100% compliant with it. It would be of huge help if you could rate each of the following "gray area" foods on 10 scale, 1 being ok and 10 extremely... (more)

I am thinking about to start paleo diet. Beside other reasons, one of the reason is also that I have low cholesterol (both good and bad). Paleo diet looks great for me because I also should raise saturate fats intake. In past I was avoiding animal... (more)

I've got an autoimmune disease and have been very strictly paleo (Whole30) for a month now. I have had absolutely no flair-ups since becoming paleo and have found that no meats trigger the inflammation response in me that causes flair-ups. ... (more)

I have these really bad rashes on my arms, could eggs be a contributor? Would it make sense if eggs were contributing to increased intestinal permeability and resulting in an autoimmune response in my skin?

Yes. I have an eczema rash on my back that flares up when I eat eggs or cheese. I ran a food allergy test and both eggs and cheese were the highest allergic foods for my body. I took a week off of eggs and the rash severely improved. This is... (more)

If your condition responds to Prednisone, more than likely, it's due to autoimmunity. It's an immune atack. Are you gluten and dairy free? I would at least get rid of those two items at minimum. Another aspect of Prenisone has to do with its... (more)

Thank for the suggestion re recoriding reactions in a diary, I will definitely pass it on. At the moment things are quite ad hoc in the 'adjustment phase' as we come to terms with teh condition... Thanks.

Do you think there could be an autoimmune component to degenerative disc disease? Especially when diagnosed early in life?

I've also had disc issues since my 20s. My Chiro. says that the degeneration of the disc on my 5th vertebrae is on par with a 70-year-old whose spine was a different shape than mine (meaning it did not happen from wear and tear.) I also have many... (more)

If you are feeling numbness and tingling it's almost certainly a vertebral subluxation issue and you need to see a chiropractor. I would suggest a gonstead chiro aa they are the most effective, uninvasive, specific, natural type and many gonstead... (more)
