  1. Neck pain

    Hello! For the past 20+ years I have suffered from degenerative disc disease in my neck. I spent a lot of years in pain, but over the past year +, I have miraculously felt better, but I attributed that to lower stress in my life and elimination of wheat from my diet. That is until recently. When I was following a low carb diet, my neck rarely bothered me, but since starting the Whole 30 almost 2 weeks ago, my neck is stiff and painful every day. Could it be something I am eating? I used to use full fat cream in my coffee, but switched to canned coconut milk, mostly the fat from it. Other than coconut, which I know some people can be sensitive to, why would my neck pain have come back suddenly after several years of quiet? Prior to whole 30, I did have some coconut products, but mainly coconut oil and not every day. The only other things that I have been eating in any quantity is an apple, sweet potatoes and almond butter. I cannot think of anything else that I was not already eating pretty regularly. Any ideas? I have searched all over the internet for information on foods that cause inflammation, but other than foods that cause inflammation, but nothing stands out. For example, I was already eating nightshades, so I don't think those are the culprit. Obviously, I have increased my carb intake from really low lot to moderate. I eat maybe one fruit serving a day.
