Hey there.. Roza is right on with her advice... you can also try glucosamine and chondritin... as well as flax seed oils and fish liver oils... where is your pain? How are you feeling?
i'm taking MSM( naturemade glucosamine chondroitin. but i have stopped taking the regular meds and decided to take all the herbal food supplement. What made me physically well is the food supplement immune syster booster. I also take a mangosteen supplement & b12,calcium etc.. Imagine, I'm no longer into steroids,plaquenil & methotrexate and no pain reliever at all. hurray. But of course i will disclose the name of the supplement as soon as i get to see my rheumy & undergone the usual blood test because i don't want to mislead others.i want to share the good news when i get to see the improvement on my blood tests results.
i have ra for the last 3 years. my affected joints are both wrists(fused) and left knee. decided to go on all herbal food supplement last june 2006 and experienced gradual drastic improvement recently. but of course its my 100% faith in the Lord more than anything else.
i can drive. i can do my sales work.
presently taking fosamax,livial,calcium,MSM & food supplements
