@mike1 are you on prescriptions for arthritis? What also helps is an elimination diet, where you omit dairy and wheat. Dairy’s way more of a joint pain trigger than wheat, I find.
Also, when it comes to prescriptions, I like Plaquenil (Hydroxychloroquine), it stops the inflammation without too many side effects.
When I omit dairy and wheat and take Plaquenil, I can jump out of bed in the morning without stiffness and get right on with the day. Before doing those things I’d gripe and moan, since getting out of bed would be this impossible feat that required me to put up with some intense pain.
