I completely changed my diet prior to seeing the first rheumatologist, and the joint
pain got better. 8 months later, my joint
pain is not much of a problem (although I can still feel pain). The real problem now is the excessive popping in my wrists, shoulders, and jaw. Just as the joint pain did, the popping started in my wrists, eventually moved to my shoulders, and is now in my jaw as well. I cannot do much of anything without the popping.
