Humira

Humira

I am on Humira. I take the injection every second week. I must admit, my hands still get very painful from time to time. What else can I do to prevent my hands from being so painful. specially my thumbs and the knuckles.

CBD Drops are from the Marijuana plant, they are the drops that help with pain, I refuse to take the THC drops because want to know what I am doing at all times....the THC drops give you that high from Marijuana. CBD drops are very expensive though, I order them from Alberta Canada..and through a prescription from a doctor.

you could try soaking them in Apple Cider Vineger (it must be made from the whole mother apple)
it is reusable but put it in glass not plastic as it would break down the plastic !
and take K2 read my other post :-) it breaked down the calcium deposits in the soft tishue and sends it back into the bone ...
let me know if it helps xxx

i STArted taking cbd oils about 2 months now. It has helped tremendously. My hands were the last thing to feel better so I think the CBD oil is the missing link. I also follow a strict diet. I am no no medication doing it this way except for a daily apo-quininehydroxy (spelling) no side effects. The diet is Wahls Protocol if anyone is interested. BtW my Doctor told me if I didnt go on methodoxtrate I would be in a wheel chair. That was over 18 months ago and I am nearly pain free...so??

I had to stay off prednisone, as it is a steroid and not good for the heart, I have been told by speciatists. It did make things better, but when I went off it I was sore, but it got better. Many have said cheese is a big trigger for pain. I no longer eat cow cheese. I do seem to be better off it. I find a daily teaspoon of tumeric and a cayenne pepper capsule help with joint pain and digestive upsets. I also have a teaspoon of ginger, hot but helps the digestive tract, or ginger beer and cranberry juice. I have no trouble with feta or other goat and sheep cheese.
