The arthritis in my feet used to be debilitating. I cut out gluten (for intolerance reasons) and I nearly eliminated sugar and I swim in a warm pool. I hardly even realize that I have arthritis anymore!
I also take MSM, Glucosamine and Chondroitin.
Good luck to you!
Reading over the thread, it's amazing how many do the same things I do, including the ACV mixture, and a "corn bag"!
1/4 c hot water (not boiling)
1 T honey
3/4 t baking soda
To the above, add 3 T Apple Cider Vinegar (with "the mother") it will foam up and then settle a little. Then drink it. Start with 2 times/per day on an empty stomach. After 1 week, go to two times per week. That's what we're doing and it's great stuff for arthritis and gout.

Apple Cider Vinegar and Baking Soda
Mixing apple cider vinegar and baking soda together creates a drink with a nearly perfect pH of 7, according to "The pH Miracle." This helps balance the body and contributes to an alkalizing diet, which may reduce symptoms of gout. Pour 2 tbsp. apple cider vinegar into a tall glass and add 1/2 tsp. baking soda. It will foam for a few minutes. Allow all the foam to dissipate and then add 6 to 8 oz. water. Drink the entire amount at once. Consume a drink like this two to three times daily during an acute gout attack to reduce symptoms. Continue to consume this drink once daily to help prevent future attacks. Although this mixture neutralizes the baking soda, in general baking soda can raise the blood pressure. Before using this mixture, check with your health practitioner if you have high blood pressure or take medicine for hypertension.
