I beleive that it can come and go. Stress, weather changes and making meatloaf can set mine off! lol I am not sure about the diet part if it causes flare ups.
My doctor currently ordered a cat/pet scan on the torso.
He is now thinking that my arthritis and thyroid are not my true problems. He beleives that I have fibromylasia. This is new to me, I have been reading up on this. It is hard to diagnois because it seems that my aches come and go from one place to another. From one day to abnother.
I try to avoid the cold, without gloves. Alieve helps, or celebrex when I can't take it. There is not to much I can do about the stress. It seems that I really do not know what bothers me.
My best to you,
