Hey guys, I haven't been here for a while (was feeling so good for a while there that I didn't "need" to come here!), so not sure if you'll remember me.
Anyways, I wanted to hear about other people's experiences with changing their diet. I'm considering going gluten-free for a while (or at least wheat-free) to see if it helps with my symptoms (mainly severe fatigue, joint pain, and pleuritic chest pain). Has anyone else had any luck with using diet to control symptoms? I already try to avoid dairy but could certainly improve in that area... are there any other big offenders out there that I might avoid?
I don't have a lupus diagnosis, I actually saw a new specialist in May and he basically said that I am a medical mystery :(.... he considered lupus and sarcoidosis but doesn't think I have either. So I'm back to square one - "autoimmune disease not otherwise specified". Many (most) of my symptoms match lupus though so I find some comfort reading this forum :).
Thanks for any input!!
