Any advice? I need some relief?

Any advice? I need some relief?

Why aren't any of my meds working? I'm on 1200 mg gabepentin, 3000 mg glucosamine, 200 mg trazadone, 15 mg melatonin, 40 mg mobic, 3 mg risperdal, 40 mg celexa, calcium, d3, a once a week 50,000 unit of D2, plus a few other daily meds & more than my limit of Aleve, Excedrin & Advil. I have no insurance so I'm very limited to changing any of these meds. But I'm open for suggestions. I'm getting very little to no relief from any of them right now. Any advice???

Pain relief

Pain relief

What does everyone do for pain relief? I've been on Norco but it barely touches the pain and my MD changed me from every four hours to every six hours which is just stupid. Now my life is breakthrough pain. I finally got a referral to a pain specialist and I want to know what works for people? Advil and Aleve do nothing for me. Eventually I hope to be on a Biologic that will take away the pain, then I can go off those meds, but in the meantime I have ZERO quality of life.

Has anyone ever had severe tailbone pain w/ their RA?

Has anyone ever had severe tailbone pain w/ their RA?

My 19 yr old daughter has RA & has had terrible pain in her tailbone for a few days now. She was recently diagnosed and has started plaquenil. Advil and Aleve have done nothing. She finally took a steroid today b/c her pain is so bad. But she hates taking them b/c they make her gain weight.

Prednisone really helps but weight gain is terrible for the pregresssion of RA.
I hate to take it but I will when I can't stand the pain anymore.

Has anyone tried Essential Oils for pain relief?

Has anyone tried Essential Oils for pain relief?

I don't want to take pain meds. Looking into natural remedies. I take turmeric and probiotics. Also rotate Advil and Tylenol all day long. I've read about oils for pain that can be taken orally, soaking or burning. Interested in others opinions.
