I have had arthritis for years, but nothing like it has been the past three weeks.
I have been on Voltaren for close to 20 years. Before I took the medication I could not make a tight fist with my hands. With Voltaren I was back to normal.
Okay fast forward - Three weeks ago I woke up and the joints in my fingers, wrist, shoulder, lower back and hips hurt with that nasty arthritic feeling. That lasted 2 days, and then the arthritic pain was in the background and I felt good again.
The following Tuesday, BANG, another flare up of my arthritis in the same joints. Thank goodness that only lasted for a day.
Then this morning I got ZAPPED again. This is getting downright depressing.
When I would have a "bad weather" day with my lower back pain I initially thought it was perhaps due to the atrmospheric pressure, etc. However, I could never find any correlation. One of those bad days would just come without any warning.
Enough background - Questions - Have any of you had similar arthritic flareups, etc.? If so, were you able to find something that would help?
All of your experiences, thoughts and advice are most welcome.
