What do you do for arthritis
I have tried so many things to help with arthritis pain and the lack of mobility that goes with it and nothing seems to help. I have had cortizone shots that last about 3 weeks and one can only get them once every 3 months, plus they have bad side effects. I have tried ointments, over the counter meds, ultra sound machines. At our age there must be many afficted with this what do you do? I could use some help. Donny C, "The Yooper"

Try Ice treatment... I watched a 60 minutes years back about these kids in Asia, that were deformed from Arthritis and they started an cold treatment... the results were miraculous! They were 100 percent normal in months of starting this treatment... should look it up online.. see if this could help you

Occasionally crying works, must be the sodium dripping on my hands.
Actually I havent found much that helps for long term, except constant exercise.

I did some research on this subject last night at the suggestion of my daughter. There seems to be some positive results from eating cherries or drinking cherry juice for not only arthritis, but also gout. It was convincing enough that I'm going to give it a try. Good luck

I have tried just about everything for arthritis. The only thing that has worked for me is Osteo-Bi-Flex. It takes about 2-3 weeks to start feeling the difference. Almost all my aches and pains will leave if I stay on this product. My wife tried to switch to something a little cheaper that looked just like Osteo-Bi-Flex without telling me and after 2 weeks I asked her if something had changed with my supplements because I was having all kinds of aches and pains again, she fessed up and told me that she had tried a different arthritis supplement and did not want to tell me , just let the pain do it. I told her to go back to the good stuff and don't ever switch again. This is just my expierience, but whatever you try give it a good month to make a good evaluation.

Southernson, I agree blondes do help but only on a temporary basis, the same is said for brunettes, redheads and brown haired ladies. The older I get it seems to be even more temporary.
Swing for the fences, cold is interesting, as cold weather makes my arthritis ache more but you say cold therapy helps. Most certtainely a difference, I will look into this.
Hombre, I reside near Traverse City, MI called the cherry capital and have used cherrry juice but to no avail, but I hear that cherry capsulas have over 100 times the cherry juice strength, I may try that.
E4/E6, sometimes it gets so bad I feel like crying and exercise does help, just hard to get up and do it.
Stick8, I think your mind is in the right place, if one gets what one thinks you got it working. Donny C, "The Yooper"

Although the above mentioned methods may combat arthritis there is no real concrete cure. If there was it wouldn't be a s widespread. The way I figure it is if I'm going to have to deal with arthritis issues I may as well do it with a smile on my face :)

If it you have to, try going to see a pain management doctor. It is a pain in the ass to do it (no pun intended), but I need a hydrocodone from time to time for ailments that aren't arthritis related also.

FYI~there is no cure for arthritis. I know what helps my joints, but I can't tell you the same.

IMO~Ice is the best quick fix remedy.

Good luck finding something that helps.
