Steroids

Steroids

Does anyone have any suggestions on what to take for inflammation/flare other than steroids? Any good results with meds that help? I can't take steroids for more than a few days and a low dose. It's so frustrating because that's all my doctor seems to prescribe when I'm in a flare. I know it works quick, but the side effects are too much and it doesn't last. Suggestions anyone??

Honestly, I have to take pain meds. Normally a flair for me is such terrible pain in my back and hips that I can hardly move. My flairs always last for 3 days, then they leave as quickly as they come. The other recommendations are great. I'm going to try some. Thank you all for your responses!

Cindy,
May I also recommend for you to try a soak in a warm bath with Epsom salts and or lavender to relax. Also, tai chi, yoga, modified chair excercises to build up your core and mindful meditation. I hope this helps.
