Now that the weather is getting a bit chillier I wondered if anyone had some good remedies, or pain relief methods, for arthritis. It's kinda funny that with the weather the rod in my leg bothers me every once in a while, yet the arthritis in my left elbow and shoulder flare up at the slightest chill.
Right now I just take 600mg Ibuprofen when I have really bad pain and slather Icy/Hot on it too. At times it does get bad enough that my left arm becomes useless and I can't even grasp or move a sheet of paper! I've had this for about 10 years now, but it seems to intensify as I get older.
So does anybody have any remedies, ideas to ease the pain/progression. Has anybody had any procedures done to help alleviate this? I'm thinking I need to approach my doctor with this and see if anything can be done.
