I have Celiac’s Disease and my aunt has Polymyalgia Rhuematica and I wondered if it could be an auto-immune disease side effect, in case she might have CD also. If it is possible that a gluten free diet might help her, please inform me.
Arthritis Associated with Other Illnesses Q & A
Hello…I was recently exposed to Salmonella poisoning via peanut butter. This has been documented twice in our local emergency room. Since this exposure I have experienced SEVERE pain in my lower back, knees, elbows, wrist and ankles. The doctor informed me this was directly related to the Salmonella but would pass and he gave me Motrin, Tramadol, and a Cortisone injection. This only relieves the pain in a small degree. I am to see a RA doctor tomorrow, but I am questioning how long will I continue to feel these effects..? I was diagnosed with RA 16 years ago, and have suffered in a range from mild to moderate but generally only in my fingers, and occasionally my feet. But never anything like this.
