Hello. My son has been diagnosed with Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis - Enthesitis-related (I have AS and have successfully been on the no starch diet for years). However, the no starch diet doesn't seem to be helping him enough. He still has swollen very sore feet (and very painful swollen knees at times, and painful upper inner thigh at times) and cannot walk. He's 12 and he is getting depressed about his inability to participate with his friends in activities he used to do and loves doing. He started taking Naproxen because the diet wasn't helping but he got extremely tired while on it and also started having heart palpitations and nausea so we have stopped that. He is taking an anti-inflammatory and mildly immune-suppressing herbal tincture, and non acidic vitamin c.
Does anybody have any ideas or experience with anything like this? Any help/advice would be so greatly appreciated. Thank you.
