Anyone got any ideas of how to deal with arthritis? My doctor just said “ deal with it “ can’t take steroids, but my pain limits my everyday to day movements.

      Yes find another doctor. But a suggestion is a paraffin bath. That helps soothe the pain and get some good CBD cream to rub on your arthritis area.

      Sometimes smoking helps me- heat/ warm baths- I was prescribed a couple different meds that didn’t work out for me. Arthritis is really difficult and I’d recommend finding a different dr also because it’s hard to not have someone on your side with that

      I’m not sure. I would try to find another doctor, but I know that’s not easy. I have pain medication, but it doesn’t always help. I try elevation (my arthritis is in my knees and left foot mostly), sometimes for swelling and pain. You could always try something with lidocaine.
