Hi to all,

I took 2 50mg diclofenac and it took ages for it to work why would walking increase pain and stiffness i could scream and then iam really fatigued with it 2 it is so frustrating to be like this trying my hardest to loose weight i have gone from a size 16-14 but i do not apriciate more pain as a result..........of my efforts i would like less.
Iam going to see doc am not happy with this.
Do u have any ideas at all.

Walking involves tons of joints. Probably every joint in your body other than your jaw does something when you walk. Definitely tell your doctor about it. For me, the best bet is usually just to pay attention to my body and I get to know when I'm going to have a bad day and when too much is too much. Take care.
-SLE, RA &'s all about the acronyms!

-Current meds: Plaquenil, Sulfasalazine, and a little NSAID du jour for flavouring. Mmmmm NSAIDs.

Have you tried Cherry Juice for arthritis? You can order it over the internet. My daughter's in-laws live near the cherry groves in Suttons Bay on the Leelanau peninsula, and they swear by it's arthritis busting properties. They take about a tablespoon if the concentrated cherry juice, mixed into a full glass of water each day. A 1/2 gallon bottle lasts quite a long time and can be kept in the does not freeze solid. We visited them one weekend and my husband asked them if they had ever heard of the effects cherry juice had on arthritis. They opened their freezer and pulled out a bottle of it and said they take it every single day. Cherry juice is not cheap either, but it does go along ways and has many testimonials of good results, and it tastes pretty good too if you add a little sweetener.
