In brief: Rheumatism

Palindromic rheumatism (pr) consists of sudden and rapidly developing attacks of arthritis.
There is acute pain, redness, swelling, and disability of one (usually) or multiple joints. The interval between recurrent attacks is extremely variable and how long the attack lasts is also variable. There is no joint damage after attacks.

In brief: Possibly

Palindromic arthritis may go into remission with medical treatment .
The medication most often used in addition to nsaid's is Plaquenil (hydroxychloroquine) which when effective may prevent the episodes of joint pain and swelling which characterize the condition.Over time and with age the frequency of the episodes may diminish. There is no evidence dietary changes are of any benefit.
