Mar 18, 2016 · Osteoarthritis - what helps? in Bones, Joints & Muscles

I am in quite a bit of constant pair due to osteoarthritis. Have you experienced any that helps reduce this type of pain?

Thank you Alyce…I much appreciate your comments. I am very aware of the things you mention…I am convinced that there are only two things that help erase arthritic pain…steroids injections and pain killers. The injections can work in specific spots , but when your arthritis is almost everywhere, it’s virtually impossible to have enough effective steroid injections. In terms of pain killers, many doctors are hesitant to prescribe opioid medicine because of their side effects. Personally, I think the side effects are worth tolerating because they work very well on pain. The Governor of Massachusetts, where I live, has started a War Against Drugs and he doesn’t seem to care about those of us that have to use pain killer drugs because of our pain. He has made life pretty difficult for many people in our state.
