Avatar n tn I was a very healthy person. The pain began in my lower back and progressed to all my joints and entire back. When my dermatologist learned of my problems, she stopped the Accutane immediately. She stated back pain was a side effect. I read all the info before taking Accutane, and it never described these symptoms in 2001. When I was 30 years old, I had back surgery and it destroyed my back.

Avatar m tn I got sick of it so I went to the doctor who checked my ears and said that it did look sore in there and perhaps I had an infection so they prescribed a low dose of amoxicillin. I took about 1/3 of the dose and stopped because the symptoms went away. I didnt like the side effects (bad stomach) so I stopped taking it since the vibrating had stopped. The vibrating came back though after a few days, and it became a constant sense of vibrating.

Curcumin and boswellia High-bioavailability curcumin extract may be the remedy of choice for pain.

Curcumin protects joint cartilage by reducing inflammation, inhibiting inflammatory cell growth, and inhibiting cartilage-destroying enzymes.

Avatar n tn Hi all. New to this. I am a 44 year old woman who is physically fit (gym 5 days a week) and eats pretty well. Approx 5 weeks ago I developed veins showing on both hands. They have not gone away and infact they are bulging most times, and I can "feel them". They have increased and I can see some starting to climb up my forearm now. Before this, my veins barely ever showed.

Avatar f tn Any pro-inflammatory food can be a problem, particularly wheat and dairy and sugar or foods that turn into sugar quickly, and nightshades for some people. Complicated stuff here.
Avatar m tn effect of acupuncture in the treatment of back, neck, and shoulder pain, osteoarthritis, and headaches. Physical and massage therapy has been shown to be as good as surgery for painful conditions such as torn cartilage and arthritis. Astaxanthin is one of the most effective fat-soluble antioxidants known. It has very potent anti-inflammatory properties and in many cases works far more effectively than anti-inflammatory drugs.
Avatar n tn By getting just the basic daily requirement of vitamin D, you can reduce the risk of both rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. If you're over 50 you should take a daily vitamin that contains at least 400 IU (international units) of vitamin D (600 IU after age 70). Glucosamine and chondroitin: Studies support that these supplements may have some anti-inflammatory effects as well as spur cartilage growth, ease symptoms, even reverse osteoarthritis.
Avatar f tn Devil’s Claw You could combine Devil’s Claw in teas, with other potent herbs and spices with medicinal properties including turmeric and ginger. Yucca, studies that show yucca as being effective in providing relief and remissions to arthritis patients and research points to a direct link between the yucca medicinal plant and the treatment and prevention of arthritis. Turmeric contains an active ingredient known as curcumin which is the base of these anti-inflammatory properties.
10175413 tn?1427173851 I've been seeing a rheumatologist for a couple of years now for cpdd/pseudo gout, bursitis, and osteoarthritis. I believe my Hep C and cirrhosis caused my bone and inflammation problems; not the Sovaldi/Olysio. However, the S/O did make the pain worse for a solid six months. I think this was due to extra inflammation. I totally agree with Scottie in that the drugs they give us can make things worse. Even if you have a good liver, the new drugs like Enbrel can destroy it - or your kidneys.
Avatar f tn I take naprosen but avoid it on a regular basis due to side affects. I've taken turmeric the last few years for inflammation and that seems to help a little. Am very interested in herbs, alternative supplements. I also have had a lot of hair loss and have tried biotin, various shampoos, & nothing seems to work. Also have severe fatigue and would really appreciate some suggestions to help with that. Thank you.
Avatar m tn A better anti-inflammatory is turmeric, and usually ginger will be found in formulas combining standardized ginger with standardized turmeric. If you want to use non-standardized herbs, which are more natural, ginger is best used juiced and raw, but it's hard to get enough of it that way if you want to use it for inflammation as extreme as arthritis. Candied ginger is actually pro-inflammatory, because sugar increases inflammation and candied has lots of sugar in it.
Avatar m tn Start with no weight and gradually work up to heavier weights. For the elderly and those with more advanced osteoarthritis, I would suggest avoiding weights and instead use calisthenics. As you improve, you can add some light weights. Regular exercise will not only improve joint stability but will also aid in weight control. Exercise also reduces inflammation. Avoid smoking and excessive alcohol consumption. Both of these bad habits increase free radical generation and inflammation.

Avatar f tn 5 years since being diagnosed), there are many other supplements you might consider taking. For example, turmeric and ginger both have strong anti-inflammatory properties (as does fish oil). Sam-e is another one that is quite beneficial to the liver, along with improving your mood and alleviating joint pain (a true "wonder drug"). Schizanda is another remarkable supplement that's known for lowering the viral load. I'm also a big fan of a product that's available through Vitacost.

1840891 tn?1431551393 I was already taking vitamin D, C and Biotin, plus Turmeric and a Glucosamine/Chondroitin mixture. My GP had earlier suggested that it was better not to take a multivitamin, and has only recently suggested that the Omega3 (fish oil) capsules were superfluous for me, so I stopped taking them - mostly because the number of pills I'm swallowing twice a day keeps getting kind of ridiculous.
Avatar n tn I looking at a pill that contain glucosamine, boswellia, devils claw, turmeric, and ginger. I'm also reading about Mona-vie Active, a power juice also with glucosamine. has anyone gone down this path? Really want to keep skating.
