Has anyone has any experience with using a vegan, gluten-free diet to control Rheumatoid Arthritis and/or migraines? What experiences have you had and what hints / recipes would help make this transition easier?

I've read multiple articles and studies that indicate that my pain could be greatly reduced by changing my diet. I am currently mostly vegetarian, with occasional grass-fed / free-range meat eating, so while using this diet wouldn't be as drastic of a change as it could be, it'll be pretty significant. I was thinking of trying it for a few months to see if I notice changes...would this be long enough?
Most of my recipe questions involve the gluten-free angle. Are there good resources out there regarding what I'll be able to eat and what to stay away from? The hardest thing to give up will be my hoppy beers... are there good replacements?
