Osteoarthritis and pain

Hi everybody! 

Ibuprofen works well. Since I now have a sensitive stomach, I take Celebrex which is prescription.

I agree ibuprofen works best, I take 600mg 3 times a day and also omeprazole to help my stomach.  But heat is excellent too, when my hands are making me want to cry I fill up the sink with hot water and stick them in for as long as possible.

Good advisor

Great idea with the hot water @shonaM1975 ! Does anyone have experience with acupuncture or yoga for pain relief? I heard it works well.

Hello Joankay. I regularly see an osteopath. As he explains it, he can't work miracles and make the inflammation go away, but he can release the pressure on the areas affected. It works for me. Don't know if it can benefit everyone, but I am very happy with the outcome. He has also given me exercises to keep my joints flexible. 

I hope you will have a positive experience. :)

I am on naproxen, which is an anti inflammatory, omeprazole to protect my stomach & I was on co codamol but had very itchy dry skin so I have swapped to paracetamol. I'm not sure all the tablets I am taking are helping my pain really as I stopped taking all of it for just over a week due to my skin breaking out & was in just as much pain as usual! I have discussed this with my GP but they seem uninterested
