    Pain on the left toe

    This query is for my son, his left toe is sore and painful to the touch. Had blood works done and uric acid is higher than normal. Am at a loss as to what he can eat. Everything I cook is totally no salt. Asked him to drink plenty of water. What other alternative can I give him. Thanks in advance. Any suggestion would be appreciated.

    Seronegative RA, confused, alone, could it be something else?...

    I'm not even sure how these support sites even work, or where to start. Throughout my life my health has been fair, rarely got sick, except a few crazy things that are not explainable. It all started at age 20 in 2010 when I was rushed to the hospital with meningitis. After recovery no issues for a few years, then in 2012 I was back in the hospital due to a severe infection in one of the lymph nodes, located in the back of my neck (only seen in small children). After recovery just like before....

    Informational inquiry only

    I have been having trouble with my thumbs. They are fine one minute and the all of a sudden severe pain in the joint and I have to cause myself more pain by pulling on my thumbs to make the pain stop. During this pain spell I can't grip with or move my thumb at all without causing pain to worsen. Is this in common at all with arthritis symptoms?

    Rheumatoid Arthritis

    I would like to get some feedback from anyone who suffers with pain. Who may have heard about this CBD OIL/HEMP OIL breakthrough for pain control. Thoughts, opinions, anything. I've suffered with Fibromyalgia for 12 years. Now was diagnosed with Rheumatoid and Psoriatic arthritis almost 3yrs ago. I'm on opiate pain meds and really don't want to be for the rest of my life and am looking for anything more natural. Any suggestions or thoughts would be appreciated.

    Joint pain and no answers please help.

    Hello. I'm an 18 year old female and for the last 6/7 months I have been experiencing severe joint pain mostly in my knees, shoulders, ankles and wrists.

However it has now been 3/4 months since this has happened and I still have these pains. I've been tested for absolutely everything and it's all come back negative (e....

    Young with RA and looking for support

    Hi all. I'm new to this. Diagnosed with RA a few months ago. My husband isn't the emotional type so he kinda just stared at me when I had a breakdown when I was diagnosed. He never really talks about it and I actually feel awkward talking about it to him, so I don't really have great support. He gets mad when I tell him that I don't like talking about emotional stuff, so here I am. I was diagnosed right before my wedding this year and I was doing great on enbrel and plaquinil and....

    Recently diagnosed with osteoarthritis

    Been having some trouble with my left knee and was recently diagnosed with OA of the left knee after x-ray of the knee. Symptoms are pain behind the knee, restricted ability to bend the knee and the hamstring muscle sore most of the time. Really the sore hamstring muscle is more painful that the knee. Does this sound like OA or Bakers Cyst?
