I might be way off here with my thinking, but are you looking for more natural ways to help yourself?

There is an anti inflammitory at the natural health store called Curamin. Advil wasn’t working for me the other day, so I took one of those and it worked wonders. You take 3 pills a day.

There is also, if you want to be bold, Monavie juice that people take. I know there is a gal on my Facebook that drinks it every day, even while pregnant, to keep her RA in check. Her son, who is 5, also drinks it for his asthma issues. She swears by it. I think it is just an overpriced fruit juice, but depending on how serious you are it may be worth a try.

Hopefully some Bees can give you other advice 🙂

@MrsPaperFlowers:  I figured you wanted natural, hehe. Yes, check into those two and see if they help. The curamin is probably going to be your best bet or just going to the natural health store and asking them what others take may be best. You may also be able to do a quick Google search.

@MrsPaperFlowers:  Acupuncture and a weekly trip in a float tank will take the hitch out of your git a long nicely….

@MrsPaperFlowers:  ….seriously?  You’d rather be in crippling, searing joint twisting pain than to have someone relieve that with a needle so small it actually feels more like you’re being snapped with a rubber band….c’mon honey…time to cowboy up

I know needles may be scary but acupuncture works wonders. I go twice a week, and it isn’t really very many needles…usually between 3-7. I’ve been to an acupuncturist that uses 20+, but it wasn’t as effective as my current treatment. Plus, it might help you get past your needle fear a bit to prepare you for having a baby…

I don’t have arthritis, but my mom used to. First, she found NingXia Red, a fruit juice type thing that helped her tremendously. However, after speaking with a naturopath, she went and had bloodwork done and found out she was mildly gluten intolerant. Once she completely cut gluten from her diet, all arthritis symptoms vanished. It might be worth looking into…

@MrsPaperFlowers:  ..wow….that’s crazy stuff right there…..well, hope it works out cause the acupuncture would take care of it for you…but not if you’re like a cat on a hot tin roof around pointy things…..when does it stop being a needle and just become something sharp?  Or are you scared of all things pointy?

I don’t personally feel comfortable giving medical advice out. I think you should consult your doctor – he’d know best.

 

acupuncture would be a good place to start for a fear of needles.  Honestly, the second you get pregnant you’re going to be poked with needles all the time.

Also, you won’t be able to take aleve if you get pregnant.
