Oh boy! I'm saying the same thing myself! Welcome to HW. The weather (rain fronts coming in) is setting me into flares all month. One's worse than the other,and another one is coming.
What meds are you taking to control/help the arthritis?
Is it OA or RA?
I hate that there is no sure way to prevent feeling that way in the morning and all day.
Sometimes sleeping on a foam insert on your mattress will help support the lumbar.
Also, some gentle stretching in bed before you get out of it. Some heat from a heating pad.
There are topical patches that provide relief for back pain for up to 8 hours @ the drugstore, there's tons to choose from.
A back support is good to wear during the day. The thing that kinda looks like a girdle! Keeps everything aligned and reduces pressure.
Having your legs elevated can reduce the lower pain in the back and pressure.
I'm on a slew of RA meds, but they still do not provide enough relief as I would like.
It's a bummer as I'm sure you know.
What is your treatment that you're currently on??
Write back soon. Take care
