    Are you following an anti-inflammatory diet? For me, that was a game changer in my life. Cut out all dairy, all sugar and whites.

    Yes I actually bought a cook book for it as well so I had more ideas on what to make myself. And I bought a heating pad and some nice rice wraps

    Diet is definitely what to focus on. I no longer eat dairy, and taking turmeric and curcumin helped me avoid prescription medications for SLE and MCTD for a couple of years. I do take hydroxychloroquine now, but was able to manage inflammation for a while just with diet and supplements.

    I do yoga but more stretching and breathing exercises that I have learned from yoga. It helps when the pain is very bad.
