I Think I've Lost Potatoes...

29 August 2012 - 09:06 AM

I've been having odd symptoms. My severe insomnia came back..and my joints hurt..a lot! Whatever was "getting me" was getting worse.
I keep a food log, so I went back and looked at what I've eaten and symptoms. The evening I had fried potatoes, then veggie chips made from potato starch the knuckles in my hands hurt so bad I couldn't bear to move them. Holding them still hurt too. A pain pill didn't touch the pain.

Soo..I went several days with no potatoes. The insomnia remained, but the joint pain went away. I made beef stew for supper last night and when I dished mine out didn't take many potatoes. The knuckle pain came back very strong a short while after eating. I told my hubby "it looks like I've lost potatoes from my safe list". He told me I'm rediculous! I haven't lost anything..I can still eat them, I'll just have pain.
I told him I can't eat them because they cause severe inflamation and pain..along with insomnia, and that isn't good and sure couldn't help my healing. He says "it's all in my head". :(

Just needing to vent, because I sure get nothing but mocking from my hubby...
Now I'm gluten, soy, oats, dairy, corn, peanut, strawberry, mango, and apparently potato free.
