Sorry that you woke hurting so bad. I'm thinking maybe it was a combination of things that you have had on your plate. You were away and it sounds like a good well balanced diet wasn't on the menu. Also, I know when I never get enough sleep my joints feel really stiff in the morning, usually by noon I've loosened up.
I tried the anti-inflammation diet for my fibro actually. A doctor that treated me in ER last fall encouraged me to try it. I did the diet faithfully for 30 days and I didn't feel one iota better at all. He wanted me to contact him after I tried it. Once I responded, he emailed and gave me his results of his findings. He told me that not all of the patients responded well to this diet and because they didn't like avoiding a lot of the food, it was a difficult diet to stick to.
Not sure if I would try it again or not. If you want the list of foods that he told me I had to avoid, I'm sure I still have them, somewhere.
Let me know if you want me to look for them.
I hope tomorrow when you wake up, you are feeling a whole lot better and are feeling like your old self. I hope you had a great time away and will have a good weekend to get caught up here on your rest. Take care and let us know how your doing.
