Has anyone taken a pain pill that accualy makes the joint pain go away???

I don't want to have to take an additional pill everyday just to prevent my pain that occurs every other day or so. The side effect of long term pills scares me. I would rather take something when I just can't stand the pain anymore.

Any ideas???

Hi dakotaheaven :lol:
Most effective treatments, for Lupus, are primarily to minimize symptoms, reduce inflammation, and maintain normal bodily functions. I don't think that there are many treatments that eliminate symptoms entirely. Some treatments do help some patients to achieve remission (which merely means that symptoms can be controlled with little or no medication).
Your treatment regimine is a personal decision between you and your medical team. You must do what is best for you in order to maintain a relatively normal and productive lifestyle (and even that is personal for each of us). The goal is to reduce symptoms :D

Peace and Blessings
