    Default Who else - Joint pain? Solutions?

    Hi all, who else here is dealing with the joint pain aspect? I don't have lupus technically but have Undiff. connective tissue dis. they are treating it like lupus however.

    So do you have any options for management at home? What do you use to help? :?:

    Oye...pain. We're all understanding of that regardless of whether it is lupus, RA, fibro, undiff, or something else - and when we say "I feel your pain" we mean it....

    My favorite non-medication treatment is a long hot bath. LOTS of bubbles. Some oatmeal bath so I don't turn into a flaking mess, a good magazine and a cool (non-alc) drink to sip.

    Gentle stretching and yoga can help a little as well - sometimes the only time I CAN stretch is in the bath, when my muscles are warmed through.

    Gentle warm hugs, from your SO are also wonderful
