I agree Omega 3's. Vitamin C helps repair damaged tissues and helps reduce inflammation, also avoiding sugar will help you reduce joint pain and sugar is the the worst culprit. Avoid nitrites and nitrates. Wheat and other grains containing gluten. MSG and soft drinks.

my suggestion would definitely be an anti-inflammatory menu.
However, I'd also stress the importance of speaking with a nutritionist/dietitian/physician rather than self-diagnosing (not that you don't know you have arthritis; but that you need to know exactly the types/quantities of foods so you get proper nutrition to feed your muscles, etc.)

Do you know what causes the muscle pain? Sometimes it is stress - we tend to clench our muscles and when they get really tight the pain can set in. (One of the reasons a nice relaxing massage helps) I have a lot of arthritic pain and also pain caused by scoliosis, which is actually more common than people realize. I also suffered an extreme amount of pain as a result of an accident. It lasted years, but part of that physical pain was due to the psychological effect the accident had on me. Therapy can help heaps with that type of pain by teaching relaxation techniques. A Dr can refer to you a therapist if stress/emotions could be part of it. Also, apart from medication, Acupuncture is an excellent way of dealing with it, too!

Good luck,

First you might want to have your doctor refer you to Registered Dietitian who specializes in the issues you might be dealing with.

Second try the 'arthritis foundation' website to learn ways to combat inflammation. They have a 'Living with Arthritis' section with diet and activity recommendations.

there are a lot of good nutritional healing books on amazon! just have to take the time to research and find one that is right for you. Many types of arthritis, maybe your doctor can get you on the right path for nutritional healing? We had to search around till we found a doctor that took a more nutritional approach

To reduce inflammation, I would aim for a diet rich in omega 3's and vitamin C.
