Hi Twinklestar, from the moment I wake, I start to do what I can to keep my pain
level down. Before I get out of bed, I do a series of gentle stretching. Each morning
I take a long hot shower, and later in the day may take a hot soak in the tub.
Exercise is very important to help prevent stiffness so I get a daily walk in. Keeping
busy with my hobbies takes my mind off pain. i also do relaxation therapy.
I take 50mgs Savella 2x daily and will take a muscle relaxer, cyclobenzaprine for
flares. Vitamin D is needed to help with energy and achiness so I take 2000IU daily.
For helping with fatigue I take 5000mcgs of B-12. I also take Excederin occasionally
and make sure I take my multi-vitamin daily.
We all seem to tollerate thing differantly, it's all trial and error. Hoping you can find
a great combo that helps you!
