Avatar n tn Here's my suggestion to helping cope with it all. First - study your diet. Stay away from Nightshade veggies and meat!!!! They increase imflammation and that is a huge part of the pain. .Also try eating as much organic as possible. GMO and all those chemicals break down the immune system which causes a million bad side affects. All of which we cannot afford to tolerate! Use ice instead of the pain meds as often as possible.

Eat a whole-food diet including unrefined sugar, salt, oil, and flour, and as much organic produce as possible. Also, drink adequate amounts of water. How much water? Take your weight (in pounds), and divide by two. The resulting number is the amount of water, in ounces, you should ingest daily. It is impossible to overcome arthritis in a dehydrated condition.

1550149 tn?1340004330 Rheumatoid arthritis is one of the most destructive forms of arthritis. Unlike the more common osteoarthritis, R.A. is an autoimmune disease in which the immune system attacks and inflames the joints. It can cause serious damage to large and small joints and to many other organs in your body. I have found that early diagnosis with frequent early follow-up, along with an initially more intensive treatment strategy, is crucial in optimizing the best outcomes in this disease. MEDICATION Q.

Avatar n tn , cod liver oil, removing nightshade vegetables from your diet, introducing healthy fats such as raw milk, cream, butter, lard, etc. stay away from sugars and alcohol.. etc. I'm adjusting my entire diet because my knees, ankles, wrists and fingers all pop consistently and my knee joints grind (uncomfortably) when I go up and down stairs. I'm only 32. I wish you the best!
Avatar n tn Your body is probably trying to tell you that there is a functional unbalance and is not happy with your diet, in my case I changes my diet, my doctor did the suction cups on my back and the muscle twitching went away magically. First thing I would recommend is to detox your body, stop all toxic intake because is bad for the antibodies and cells and don't let them work which means healing your body, everyday coffee, tea, bread and sugar can be extremely detrimental on your health.
476246 tn?1418874514 Hi Marcia, Sounds like osteoarthritis to me. I have it in most of the joints in my body, and while it was annoying before, it is really wearing me down now. Joint pain seems to be often aggravated by Tx, at least for me. In fact, the head, neck, shoulder and spine aches are the most devastating thing about these meds, which I've now been on for 47 weeks. Don't get me wrong - the foggy headed, short tempered, itchy skinned, thin haired stuff are no picnic either.
Avatar n tn 3 years ago I lost a dramatic amount of weight, 75-80 lbs in 7 mths on the Atkins Diet. With that diet not focusing much on fat, we had thought that I destroyed my gall bladder in turn. Plumenting from being over 185 lbs to around 110 was a big thing and though I was happy to shed the pounds, I don't know what this has cost me in the long run. Since this problem began again a few months ago, I have lost a few more lbs because it is hard for me to eat at times as I get that pain very bad.
Avatar f tn I also tried acupuncture, chiropractic work, and diet changes. My only diagnosis, which is what I think it is, is brachioradial pruritis, but the only prescription for relief was more creams—no root of cause or lasting cure or solution. Only relief is ice. It started 10 years ago (was living in mountains of Colorado--sunny, but little humidity) in the summer. It comes back every year around July/August and lasts thru December, disappearing just as suddenly as it returned.
