Hi, In your E-mail you didn't say what kind of
pain you have...if it is crucifying killing pain
like I get or just PAIN in a joint? My next
question is have you tried any or all the drugs
out there like celebrex, methotrexate, enbrel, arava, napersone? I have Palendromic Rheumatism
and have found the only drug that stops my pain
is Prednisone...have you tried it and if so how
much? If not why not? Not only does Prednisone
stop my pain but it also makes you want to enter
10 mile races and take up mountain bike riding.
I would make sure you take "Calcium Vitamin D
Magnesium & Zinc also...it stopped my muscle
spasms..that would wake me in the night...have
your blood tested it shows what your body needs.
As for over the counter pain pills...the good news is that some really do work well...the bad
news is that even if you find one that works...
in time it won't...I found that if I took one for
a week or two and then took another for a week or
two I had less pain...but I still take my
Prednisone....until I can find a "good drug" :)
