As of Wednesday afternoon I have started on a Gluten & Sugar free diet to help my Candida and RA. I seen the Naturopath on Wednesday morning and along with this diet she gave me some probiotics, tablets to balance my blood sugar levels and a tonic to aid with digestion and removeal of heavy metals. Yesterday was really hard. I felt hungry, thirsty and no energy. But today I've planned my day a little bit better food wise, so I don't feel hungry. Suppose it is just a matter of taking each day as it comes and dealing with it. Late last night and today I have had pain going from my lower back down to the tip of my toes. Have taken some anti-inflamitories (Mobic) and am waiting for it to kick in enough for me to get going with my day. Got so much I want to do.

Yesterday I couldn't really do much because of the pain and I was just so tired. Today my husband wanted me to do some little things, like hang the washing out, do the dishes and vacuum. I've been to scared to try in the last few days because of the pain. I gave it a go and each task killed me with pain. I had to rest in between. I'm tired tonight, but I know it's going to take ages to settle to sleep. Wish the pain would settle. Going to have the blood test for arthritis in the am. My friend still insists that it has to be low cortisol levels. I've been charting my temperature and it's been normal over this time. It's only dropped once, but that was in the afternoon on the 14 day of my cycle, so it's probably just ovulation. I really want to know what the hells going on, but I guess I will just have to wait. Not real sure about starting swimming on Wednesday, but it's a pretty low impact form of exercise so I should be ok and Sara will probably fall asleep not long after we get home. Just want one of these medical people to find the answer, so I can take the right steps to getting better and/or manageing what ever it is.
