My mother has been diagnosed palindromic arthritis. She has been having problems with her fingers for some time now. Her two fingers on her right hand become painful and inflamed. When she takes some pain relievers the symptoms usually go away in a few days. But, the problem is they occur again. What could be the cause? Can food allergy induce palindromic arthritis?

Hello! Yes, food allergy can induce palindromic arthritis. It is shown that milk products, wheat, corn, and pork may be responsible for palindromic arthritis. Some allergy specialists especially emphasize the role of pork in causing joint pain. The source of pain is often not noticed because pork-associated inflammations usually happen few days after the ingestion of a pork meal. The joint may swell, but usually inexperienced doctor can’t find the connection and identify the problem as food-related. In these cases anti-inflammatory drugs give no relief and antihistamines have been used to counter such manifestations of arthritis.
