Hi Cilly. I've been having terrible pain. Mostly my right hip, but also knee. I have prescription meds and can't take NSAIDS. When I could take them I liked Excedrin during the day, Arthritis Tylenol at night with warm-hot bath and lots of epsome salts in the water. I like lavender scented salts. Heating pads help quite a lot and Bengay helps some. My PC suggests over the counter Cortisone cream for my rashes that flake.
I just started a prednisone taper which is why I'm up at almost 4:00am. I liked Excedrin which contains caffeine, but Arthritis Tylenol works surprisingly well for me. I hope it gives you some relief Sweetie. Love, Butterflake
