In Reply to: Re:Do you have insomnia also? posted by Gramps on March 23, 2000 at 13:33:44:


: : I saw your post was at 2:06 am.

: I have had a terrible time trying to sleep, since taking all the stuff for arthritis. I read on another post that 74% of arthritis people suffer from insomnia frequently. I received a lot of suggestions and am in the middle of all of them now with some results. [not great but better]

: Hang in there, we have to beat it....Gramps


:
: : : :I haven't heard of it or if I did, I forgot already. Let me check with a guy on another forum who I have a lot of faith in, and When he responds, I'll let you know his thoughts.

: : : The little I know is that Vioxx takes the swelling down but is not a pain reliever, although in my case, much of the pain left with the swelling. I had your flu like symptems when I forgot to take the Vioxx. Are you taking the 12 1/2 or 25 mg dose?

: : : I take 1500 to 3000 mg of glucosamine sulfate/chondroiten daily [depending on my memory], 2 flaxseed tablets, fish oil tablets, vitamins C,D,and E, and Tylenol, eat cold water fish, mostly salmon, and am trying [but cheating] to stay off dairy products, nightshade veggies, [need a substitute for tomatoes] alcohol, slipped up at lunch yesterday and caffine.

: : : I excercise daily and am trying to make stretching and water excercising a bigger part of my regimen.

: : : Needless to say, I have no life right now except work and fighting this damn arthritis.

: : : I'm going right to the other forum and ask about Green Barley juice. Maybe I'll try it too....Gramps

: : : Do you know if GREEN BARLEY JUICE helps with the pain of arthritis? I have read many glowing testamonials about the benefits of it, but don't want to waste MORE money on a "quack" remedy.
: : : : I am currently taking VIOXX and want to stop because of all the side effects...elevated blood pressure, flu-like symptoms, swelling, etc.
: : : : Any thoughts on this?

: : Gramps, thank you for your kind post. I will be looking forward to what you find out.

Yes, I do suffer from insomnia. I sleep okay in the late mornings but the nights are a different story. Today, I didn't take my Vioxx (25mg.) and I hurt so bad I can hardly get around. I don't know which is worse... the arthritis or the so-called pain relief. Did you ever find out about the Green Barley Juice?
