I have OA in my CMC joints, the joints at the base of the thumb. I have it elsewhere also, but this is the only place that really bothers me.
I cannot regularly take oral NSAIDS because I'm on Blood Thinners. I have tried topical OTC Blue-Emu, Australian Dream, Topricin, and topical Prescript
ion NSAID Voltaren. NONE of these have been effective. I eat a healthy diet with lots of berries, fruits, nuts, etc. I take Glucosamine (1500 mg HCI, 1500 mg MSM), Fish Oil (3600 mg), and Provinal (420 mg) daily.
Any suggestions on how to treat this pain will be appreciated.
