Arthritis board

I can't believe there are so many people who are experiencing the same pain I go through on a day to day basis. I have ok weeks, then for whatever reason- maybe I overexerted my joints but then I have a week where I can't get out of bed, I can't pick up a carton of milk to pour for my 2 year old and 7 year old. Last night I was laying in a hot bath which I so often have to do and I was thinking to myself "ya know the only thing different than me and someone that's hanging on to dear life in the hospital is Im out there pretending to make it when Im on so much medication, and have a full time job, Im a single mother with 2 small kids, and I have to pay all the bills by myself. There is no difference with the pain... they are layed up in the hospital, and here I am walking around with so much responsibility, so much Arthritic pain, and dealing with doctors who just don't give a flip about and don't have a conscience about letting me.. a walking pain case... just slowly die a slow death. No one understands that much about it. They just treat Arthritis like they are flying by the seat of their pants. There are so many days when I ask "Why me?" "

Im going for more blood tests today so they can "rule out" things. Re: meds, I have taken Daypro, Celebrex, prednasone, and a ton of NSAID's. Does anyone know of an anti-inflamatory that works? My doctor gave me Bextra but so far- no difference in the pain. I have arthritis in my hips, shoulders, knees, hands, and elbows. Most of my pain is in my Si Joints. If anyone knows of a really good NSAID that does not hurt your stomach- please let me know.

Im Sorry all of you are going through the same pain. It's unbearable and needs to be stopped for good. There is no sense in anyone having to live in a body that makes your mind think of nothing but but the pain. I want to live!
