I am feeling so lousy! The past 2 days I have been having such awful knee pain ( bone on bone OA) but I am also getting an unbelievable amount of that sharp zinging pain all over-my ankles, elbows,wrists-it seems that every joint in my body hurts. I am trying to pace myself with Christmas cooking, baking, wrapping etc. but once I sit it is so hard to get up and go in again. I am on Mobic at the max dose so cannot take any other NSAIDs so I have been trying Tylenol throughout the day. I may as well be eating lifesavers! No relief at all. This is the worse flare up since my diagnosis earlier this year. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to ease this pain? I've tried Ice, heat, nothing seems to work. Would Prednisone help? I welcome any suggestions and advice and prayers.

Sorry, you are having so much pain, the holidays are fun but do add in some stress and pushing ourselves.

The O A is a whole other ball of wax.

I use a strong topical pain reliever...which helps me tremendously
With different pain seems pricey but a small amount lasts most the day..( soothanol x2 ), i also use pain erase..both are great.

I take some meds also, an anti- inflammatory, and low dose tramadol..but cannot take enough of meds to solve the pain issues..
So i find other things to help.

My dr had me up my fish oil to aid with inflammation..

Many of us take supplements to get some additional help..

Merry christmas to you

Have you tried glucosamine and Condrodine?

You might need to go ahead and get a knee replacement.

When i have flare, and there is nothing at hand to ease my pain, and anxiety growing at a handful tilting, which later trigger panic attack episodes.

well, usually concentrating the mind, on all the gravity, draws back the attention from suffocating with madness. i even sometimes fall on the ground from lack of strength and meditation whenever i am.

I pretty already convinced enough, that there is one cure and its death. but you know if you try, it may hurt more with a risk to stay alive afterwards.

all we have left to do. is to be here for other's, even tho you know we may never satisfy the needs of someone as the needs of ones own.
