    Joint pain in knee and both feet

    I was treated for gout and got no relief, went back to the Dr. and my uric acid had decreased but my pain went away for a few days but came back in a big way. I was sent to orthopedic Dr. and they did ex-rays and saw nothing, followed by MRI with nothing showing on that either.

    RA & Bowel inflammation

    Hello... Does anyone with RA also experience what I call Bowel Attacks? I'm developing more food intolerances too as time goes on. I first noticed reaction to Pork. I'd get a distended stomach and painful cramping followed by urgent watery diarrhea and cramping that both lasts an hour or more until there is nothing to expel. Sometimes it is accompanied by vomiting too. It's absolutely horrible and no GI can really say what's wrong with me except they suggest it is IBS?!? It is too....

    Severe Knee Pain

    I have severe arthritis in both knees. It has progressed rapidly in the past 6 months. The stiffness has caused me to tear cartilage in both knees. It's gotten so bad I can barely walk!!

    Antibiotics reducing hip pain?

    I was diagnosed with OA almost 2 years ago and have tried just about everything (ice, exercise, weight loss, diclophenac, cannabis balm) short of steroid injections and hip replacement to reduce my hip pain. I walk with a pronounced limp and find myself reaching for objects on which to steady myself while walking. Most days it only hurts when I move my legs, but more and more often there will be times that my legs (mostly the left one) ache from my groin to below the knee even while sitting or lying....

    How to help my dad with arthritis over 60

    My dad is 60 years old, is 20-30 lbs overweight and has arthritis. He is a doorman at a hotel and comes home from work in so much pain, and so tired, all he can do is sit on the computer, feed our dog and watch TV. He periodically has turned to Maker's Mark to help ease his pain. I am trying to implement veganism in our house, in hopes of helping him lose weight, but it's not enough. Any tips to help him feel better? I'm open to diets, light exercise regimens, vitamins and even chiropractors....

I had triggered attack about 3 weeks ago a very painful experience and am still having minor pain and tingling sensation on my left arm. I have prescriptions for Gabapintin and Naproxen.
