Hello! I’m new to the RA game and am struggling so much with my extremities being so stiff at the start and end of the days! Any suggestions that are more holistic in nature? I take enough pills. :/

      Weight blanket and heated blankets help me! Also when I wake up I take my time getting out of bed I stretch in bed and then slowly get off

      I really hope it helps!! I see a chiropractor once every few weeks who is incredible and helps me through flares as well- forgot to mention that earlier. Having an extra support for achey joints is always a plus ❤️

      Tiger balm really helps me!! So do warm rice packs on my joints!! Hot showers and warm pjs I’ve run through the dryer at night. Many people find relief in morning yoga. For me I found relief by taking up knitting and crocheting. It keeps my fingers moving. A friend of mine has a stationary bike she uses religiously to keep her knees going strong.
