hi, I have been researching tomatoes and RA as I absolutely love them and include them almost every day. Basically there is no scientific evidence that avoiding these foods that some are so convinced add to our problems - tomatoes and other nightshade vegetables, also some citus including oranges, lemons and grapefruit, however some people will swear that they really do help if avoided.
well the reason I ask now is yesterday I had quite a lot of cherry tomatoes and last night I had the worst pain I have suffered in a long time. Every single joint in my body was throbbing with the worst pain ever, my elbows, wrists, shoulders, hips, knees etc I felt like I had been beaten with a baseball bat. So I can't help wondering - is it just a myth? I do hope so and that it was just coincidence as I LOVE tomatoes and can't imagine my week without any! Fresh they're so tasty and juicy and a must on any salad. Tinned I use in currries, casseroles, keema, chilli, bolognese! How could I manage without them?! Lol
just wonder whether anyone can comment on this? Tia xx
