Have you tried taken a warm bath it helps me and also I have found that a hot water bottle helps as well and I went out a bought me a heated mattres cover and it was worth every I paid for it.To me it's better than a heating blanket.I hope you feel better soon.

Wow Curley we"ll all be coming to your bed. Hi Duncek and Welcome to HW we are very glad to have you and sometimes I have body pain I take tylenol. If it gets really bad I use a crutch to releave pressure for a bit. There are body masagers that have heating pads. Some people go to a Arith. specialist if they are really bad sort of comes with CD for many. Hope you get relief perhaps a swimming exercise would help to keep things flexible. lol gail

Good morning Curley,
Want to say thank you for your response to my thread. Nice to know that someone on Humera is experiencing help with little problem.
Only received your reply, so far, but looking forward to others. Still learning how to navigate this sytem. Took me til thismorning to figure out how to contact you.
Do you receive physical therapy? Am going to talk to my doctor about starting. Someone said the weight lifting if done under supervision of a physical therapist who knows my condition might be beneficial to me.
Hope you are well today. I wrote your name in my spiritual journal. Know that someone is always praying for you.
Respectfully and thankfully,


Mormor Vicky

I had a resection and supposedly I'm in remission but I still have good days and bad days. I'm finding I have to avoid certain foods and listen to my body when it says REST!!!!. I'm going through a really bad time the last week or so. Every day i take a nap and my tail bone has been really hurting. I started to take cymbalta (an anti-depressant) a couple of months ago and that has really helped my joint pains more then anything else I've taken.

To mention something from the natural route: glucosamin helps artritis like pain, also cod liver oil reduces both inflamation in the intestines and pain in the bones.

Diagnosed CD June 2007. Have been on a minor prednisone medication. Did make a difference while max dosed. Got my problems back when tapering.
Using Low Dose Naltrexone from sept. 2007. See A member in the group "lowdosenaltrexone" at yahoo.
Use home made scd yoghurt containing a lot of probiotics - a benefit for the intestines. Don't use white sugar. No yeast in homemade breads.
