The best thing you can do for your sister right now is what you are doing and that's emotional support. Make sure she still tries to get out and do things though even though she doesn't feel like it I'm sure. Also, along with that...she needs to know the limits which is different for everyone.
Hippimom: Iowa is 100 degrees right now! WOW, that's expected in texas but Iowa??? The heat zaps all my energy out and the cold stiffens me up so I'm screwed either way lol
Most rheumy's will not tell you to use it or not to use it. I read in the book they are talking about
taking it off the shelf and needing a prescript
ion for it but they be a while now but I'm going to stock up just in case the dr that I see doesn't agree with it, but I think in most instances they encourage it because of it's "good feeling" that it gives back to you even though it may not actually be honestly helping the inside.
