      Personally I take tizanidine (therapeutic dose muscle relaxer) every night before bed and that helps a lot. I also use support braces for my shoulders and pelvis. Hand warmers help with finger pain. I see a physical therapist that gives me exercises to keep up with in order to strengthen my muscles.

      I've always had really good luck with meloxicam for the joint pain, and I use some alternative therapies, but not a ton has worked for me medication-wise. Everyone's different though and I hope you find something that works!!

      We just started gabapentin for it and it's been doing well!
