My whole family has had RA once we all got covered in ticks in Martha's Vineyard one summer. We all got lyme disease which gave it to us overnight.
The RA seems to get bad in my little one when she gets stressed. And I have found that if I keep her on immune support supp. nightly, and cut out suger and milk and junk in her diet, she has great days and no pain.
I too had it very badly and some days could not walk. But this was not an option for me, to stay in bed.
For the pain I was finally put on Cymbalta. Which got rid of the pain very nicely. I started taking large amounts of supp. to build up my immune system. And I live on a very healthy diet. Almost a vegetarian. But get the pasta in there.
I just as of three days ago went off of the cymbalta. And I have no more pain. I am sure that it wil kick in some before my womens cycle. But I am so relieved.
I also did Ozone therapy at envita for my pain and huge array of other symptoms. It is in AZ.
Hope this helps.
2004 in Martha's Vineyard me and my two daughters then 11 mos and 6 all got Lyme Disease. This was only known to us because we found the tiny ticks on us and we got very ill. My dog also got lyme and he went lame.
We have fought it for 4 years to no avail.
We all got it again this summer is Texas.
I am now in treatment in Scottsdale Arizona at Envita.
