    I actually recently have tried black cherry juice for pain, tart cherry is supposed to work even better. It was actually very helpful in reducing pain and swelling/inflammation. It's kind of spendy but was really worth it last weekend when I first tried it. CBD can help too. I actually take hydroxychloroquine but have halved my dose to 200 mg day. It is helpful too, since taking hydroxychloroquine I have more energy and my hand arthritis-like pain is gone.

    Is Tylenol and Ibuprofen also on the no medications list?
