Looking for things other than medications to help my inflammation and pain! Anyone have anything that’s worked for them?
Chronic Generalized pain
Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE)
Definitely look into changing up your diet and cutting out inflammatory foods. It can be different for everyone, but for me personally I just started a vegan diet and it’s made a HUGE difference in my joint pain and my fatigue. Some people find relief from just cutting out gluten or dairy. It’s all trial and error
When I get really achey I take a bath in epsom salt. It helps a little. My doctor isn’t very good so she only has me call for steroids if I’m in a bad flare and I wish there was another doctor close to me… but there isn’t.
@EmilyRose, thanks! I’m going to look into cutting things out of my diet and see it that helps!
@Kaedlyn thanks for the tip! A good soak is going to be on my agenda. And I am totally right there with you, feeling the same way about my doctor!
I’ve also heard that diet can have a big impact on pain, but I’m stubborn and have never made the effort to change things up so I don’t know personally how that helps but I have heard that it makes a difference. One thing I remember hearing is that flour in foods can cause more inflammation. I know nothing about why that would be, but I guess it makes a difference. If you make a change and it helps please let me know, would love to hear others experience with this
I use essential oils. I love young living panaway when I’m in a lot of pain
