Hi I’m ozzy, I have severe joint pain that affects my daily life. I’m currently seeing a rheumatologist about my joints and possible conditions I may have but she doesn’t truly listen and understand my pain. My joints flip flop around and bend/dislocate on me all the time. What are the best ways to deal with the pain?

      On bad pain days I’ll usually have a warm bath to soothe my joints. It usually comes right back once I get out of the tub, but it’s nice to at least have that temporary relief. Additionally, I’ve found that kt taping my unstable joints (for me, my knees and wrists) relieves some of the pain in those joints as well as others supported by those joints. These are very temporary and limited in how helpful they are, but since ibuprofen etc doesn’t work at all, sometimes just that little bit of relief is nice
