    Default Getting arthiritis grrrr.

    been a painter and decorator for over 28 years now and i am starting to suffer from the dreaded arthiritis. Started last year getting it my elbows it was quite painfull and i struggled carrying heavy things. now i am starting to get it in my right shoulder, although its not too bad at the moment it is affecting my work, i can feel pain when im rolling celings and walls etc, and also when im lying on it in bed at night.

    I'm only 44 so i've still got a few working years to do yet.

    So what medication do other people use for their arthiritis.

    I think I have it in my knuckles as they swell at time and are quite painfull and sometimes its inpossible to pick a item up with my finger and thumb. Car washing in the winter is deadly for it and so is wringing out my drying towels.
    Plus I have a totaly duff back to go with it and I am about to touch 40.
    A good pain relief is a good hot bath and warm weather

    Ive been taking Glucosamine for stiff joints and bad back, it does work a treat as Ive tried loads of other meds that didnt work, check it out here ... get these asap and I bet you within 1 week you will feel better.

    Diclofenac is great for joints - prescription only and not sure about long term use, so see the Doc

    i've been looking at glucosamine with chondroitin tablets for a while now but i've always put off buying them saying it wll probably go away but now i guess ive finally accepted that i AM gonna have to order some and start taking them .

    Have you been to see your GP at all?
    They can prescribe you anti inflammatory drugs or refer you to a specialist.

    Diclofenac is now available over the counter badged as Voltarol.

    It is expensive at £5.80 for 12 tablets, but a doc may give you a scrip.

    My wife had it prescribed after her Caesarean and she was up and about nearly doing the lambada, wonderful painkiller (Sorry, I sound like Michael Jackson)

    i have it in my lower back, birth defect, im only 27, but i find acupunture is brilliant for it, really helps alot, also u cn take ibprofen as it is a anti inflamaty along with some pain killers, it will help alot.
    just try not to stay on it all to long as your body will get to used to it, i go through a pack of nurofen a day, not good, but needed!!
