RF and CRP positive

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I wrote about my foot pain 7-10 days ago. I really have no clue what it was. I thought it could be bunion or gout. I could not walk for about 5 days straight because my left foot was hurting so much. I literally cried from pain. My dr. said that she thought that I might have hit it but I know for sure that I did not. She ordered some tests, including RF and CRP, which came back positive and ASO negative. Can you please tell me what you think of these results? My foot is still hurting but not as much; sometimes I have chills and I am often feeling cold and my hands are mostly cold, my left eye has been hurting a bit on and off for a couple of years but tests always came back ok, and I experience random muscle twitches. My iron level is fine. I follow gluten-free diet because I have celiac disease but I ate some potatoes 2 weeks ago and I do not know if this had a negative effect on me. I have a stressful job so I have been eating more processed gluten-free food and chocolate that I usually did. I stopped again. To make things worse, I have a business trip that I cannot cancel and I am not sure whether I can catch my doctor before my flight. Do I need to see a doctor before I leave? I will be gone for 10 days. Thank you very much.

If stressed you will need higher levels of magnesium and B-vitamins, perhaps some more antioxidants, green tea, and vitamin C to help flush your system. As for the foot I would really suggest perhaps a deep tissues massage to break up anything in there and get it to relax, followed by a Epson salt soak. You might have a pulled or overly tense muscle, or a pinched nerve in it. Heck could even been a deep tissue bruising, I always find getting my massage therapist to work on them does wonders, and I walk 12+miles a day, Odd to say but I have a stress/restless thing where I have to stay moving to feel at ease so I normally pace while reading or working on a tablet on and off throughout the day. >.> I think it might have come from being stuck in bed for weeks in the past with the celaic complications, odd thing really.

Hi,

If you are trying to avoid potato then you shouldn't be eating much gluten-free processed foods anyway.  Most of it has potato starch in it.   People who have issues with potatoes can sometimes react to other nightshades also, like peppers, tomatoes, eggplant.


Proverbs 25:16 "Hast thou found honey? eat so much as is sufficient for thee, lest thou be filled therewith, and vomit it."

Job 30:27 My bowels boiled, and rested not: the days of affliction prevented me.

Thyroid cyst and nodules, Lactose / casein intolerant. Diet positive, gene test pos, symptoms confirmed by Dr-head. My current bad list is: gluten, dairy, sulfites, coffee (the devil's brew), tea, Bug's Bunnies carrots, garbanzo beans of pain, soy- no joy, terrible turnips, tomatoes, peppers, potatoes, eggplant, celery, strawberries, pistachios, and hard work. Have a good day! 🙂 Paul
