I can't think that this is diet related. I had an injection in the ball of my thumb when I had trigger thumb. It stopped it straight away and I haven't had any more trouble (at least 8 years - can't remember exactly!) Better see the doctor.

If wine makes you feel bad then don't drink it. You probably don't eat wheat due to inflammation so why drink if it causes inflammation. Find other means of recreation. Maybe knitting or something.

I know of a physical therapist who calls this a subluxed rib. He says that if your try hanging from a pull-up bar with hands in chin-up position. Sometimes this helps. I have no links or sites - this is just what he says to me verbally.
