Sun, Mar 1 3:27pm · Diverticulitis with C.difficile in Digestive Health

Hello oceanone. I find that I can go on soft foods, instead of liquids only, to give my colon a rest. I drink Smart water to keep hydrated without depleting my electrolytes. That usually is enough without antibiotics.

@happyat76 , I had sciatica which was pain on the right side of my spine and burning pain down my right leg. Very painful. Has your doctor considered that? Good luck.

@maryclaire651, I have researched it a lot and everything I've read says that nothing negative or harmful had been found. I'm one who uses medication only when absolutely necessary and only as long as it's needed! I'm going to try this and 300 mg per day is the correct dosage.

@maryclaire651. I went to the Mayo website and looked up osteoarthritis. It's mentioned under diagnosis and treatments, keep scrolling way down. It isn't really an article per se. I did read an article about it in a doctor column and can't remember the name. Sorry. I'll try to find it.

Justin, I guess I'm in the early stages of arthritis. The pain started in my left thigh and progressed up to my hip. Also, I have occasional pain in my thumbs and wrists. I'm using Voltaren Gel and Tylenol for relief. A CT scan last week confirmed my arthritis, and a hip replacement is not needed! 🙂
I'm going to try avocado-soybean unsaponifiables softgels, which I read about on the Mayo clinic website.
Thanks everyone!

Thank you. I'm a little leary of "hot" creams or lotions. My skin seems to be extra sensitive.

I've never heard of EMU salve. Thank you
