Hey Ducky - thanks for the response. I too am late in responding, actually read an entire book this weekend! What a luxury. Feel free to be entertained by us crohnies anytime...alot of humor on the strangest topics.
Hope you're doing ok.
I'd much prefer the OA to be 'wear & tear' rather than something else within my body tearing it down. Having RA & AS is enough, thank you very much!
I was having difficulties trying to get some 'real' information - hence my posts here to those in the know.
Yes, my trigger finger is affected, but so are my other fingers on both hands - same with my RA. I've only been shooting for almost 4 years, so I can't imagine all of a sudden OA would appear. That's why I'm hoping for the w&t.
I can't take pain med's - I'm a crohnie with C not D and they make the C much worse. I take ibuprofen - sparingly now. I used to take it on a much more regular and frequent scale.
"Glucosamine, Chondritin and MSM" do these really help? Any suggestions on what kind, how much to take? Any chance this will interfere with med's I'm currently taking? I probably should be adding flaxseed or Omega 3 oils to my diet anyway, good reminder.
I appreciate the hello and information...pop on by anytime!
Take care and thanks!
