Greetings to everyone. I've been having lots of trouble with pain in hands and arms and have had to reduce activity. I've tried to keep reading but haven't logged in. Trying to catch up today but if I don't get around to your thread, please know that I'm thinking of everyone here, and of course, the people of Japan.

catwoods hoping that rest and not using your hands and wrists for awhile will make  you better so we can look forward to seeing your posts once again. Take care of yourself.

Thanks so much everyone, for your good thoughts. My treatment plan is basically to reduce activity and to pace out the remaining activities. It's helped some but not entirely. I'll go see the MD's, eventually, if things don't resolve.

Take good care of yourself and keep us posted. One of the best over the counter pain relievers for muscle aches I have found is Aleve. It doesn't take affect really quickly but after a while you begin to say "Gosh, I think the pain is gone".  Smiley

Janet has good suggestion in the Aleve. Also while at health food store today asked if they had a natural replacement for Motrin and they suggested Arnica and another brand that is in a roll on tube that you apply to where you are having the pain and it penetrates to soothe the pain. Since I have stopped eating gluten the aches and pains in hands, wrists, fingers has stopped. Now and then finger joints hurt but that is from thyroid problem and goes away after a few hours on its own.

catwoods hoping you find a remedy that will alleviate the pain as that can wear you down and tire you out so easily - takes a lot out of a person so do understand your cutting back on activities and posting til your pain subsides.
