Hello! I’m Annie and am only just starting to get my head around what all this anti inflammatory talk is!

I have spondyloarthritis ... pain in my neck and lower back and legs. I’m 40 with two young children (2 and 4ys) and I live in Australia. It’s a real struggle for the last 18months. I’ve only known I had inflammatory arthritis for the last eight months.

Anyway I’ve been trying to sort out my pain with pain meds and trialling different immuno suppressants meds to no avail so far. Three weeks ago I was trailing a new drug and it made me so sick I thought I just can’t take this situation anymore. I remembered my rheumatologist has said in my first appointment that some people finds low starch diet reduces pain dramatically so I’m three weeks into that. I’ve also just joined my local pool to do some lap swimming. So far so good. I’ve lost 6.5 kgs so far and mentally feel sooooooo much better plus I’ve never eaten so regularly or so well!

But I’m new to it all and hope to learn lots more as I progress. Hope to meet you all soon :)
Annie
