I have eliminated sugar, coffee and gluten, been "fairly" strict for the past 1-1/2 years...the coffee haven't touched at all, decaf or regular, but the gluten, I have gone back to on occasion. Has it made a differnce? Yes, but not a huge one. I use to get a lot of burning pain, which I was told was an inflammatory process, from those foods mentioned, and I do not get much of that any more. BUT, the rest is still with me...muscle, tendon, ligament pain, fatigue, fibro fog, all still there.
