    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....

    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....

    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!! Most nights I can't sleep for the pain. I've seen an Orthopedic surgeon who put injections in them but it only swoll and hurt more. I've taken Diclofenac but it doesn't help. The Orthopedic surgeon says I need double knee replacement surgery but due to other health issues I'm not a good candidate....

    Up coming hip replacement

    By the grace of the good Lord, early retirement, I'll be turning 46 next week (near fatal motorcycle accident 3 years ago; another driver pulled out in front of me). After 38 years of leg pain (adolescent hip dislocation; pinned), decided to have my hip replaced. Excited to say the least, finally going to get it done. Since the near fatal accident, I'm also dealing with PTSD & other mental disorders; I isolate myself in my home. My anxiety by having to leave the security of my home is....

    OA night Pain

    I'm 45 and have been dealing with OA for about 25/30 years...yes it started when I was about 15 because of osteochondritis dissecans. After years of degrading knees, I'm finally at the point where I have not slept through the night in 3 weeks. I can deal with the pain during the day and during exercise but the nigh time pain and sleeplessness are starting to take its toll. I wake up several times at night with shooting nerve pain from my knee down to my ankle. After trying many different....

    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....
