Hi everyone....in need of a little support today...
I am having a flare of my arthritis. It is so severe that i can hardly lift the Gallon jug of milk to make a bottle for my daughter. My shoulders/wrists/thumb and hip joints are soooo painful. I have not been able to sleep for two nights now. I take 5mg percs 3x a day for my foot pain, and am getting NO relief at all from the arthritis. I can't take any NSAIDS due to my ulcerative colitis, but im in so much pain right now that im seriously considering taking some over the counter Advil and paying the price later for it....
Anyone have any ideas that might help? Im DESPRATE right now!!!!
Thanks for letting me vent and cry..i really need it right now....(my husband is sick of hearing my complaints, so i try not to complain out loud much)...
