      I get a hot stone massage when I can afford it and I take Amitriptyline and duoloxetine which have both been awesome. When flare ups get really bad I go to ED/ hospital and it doesn't always help but the last couple times I've had really decent doctors

      I loved my dry needling sessions and doing some yoga stretches

      What helped me (along with medication) is getting my blood glucose under control (T2 diabetic) those glucose spikes were a big inflammation trigger for me. I also try to stay hydrated and I’m in physical therapy so I hope to become more physically active (exercise has so many benefits)

      I take a natural supplement called Inflamma-X... It's helped tremendously with my chronic pain when even prescription pain meds hasn't. But it reduces inflammation. My joints, back, neck, knees, etc all have seen a significant improvement in just a week. But mine might not be as chronic as yours. I'd give it a try though. I thought it wouldn't work as other natural alternatives didn't in the past but it has, better than prescription meds. :)

        @italianxpeaches Like one commenter said you can get it on Amazon :) I didn't buy the bottle I'm using now. My dad sent it to me to try out since he's a "health nut" so to speak and believes in all natural things. But if there's a store locally that sells natural supplements and vitamins, it's probably there too.

      If you can afford it, ketamine! I did injections, as my doctor has had a better experience with them, but infusions should help too! Expensive but got rid of 75% of my pain. It’s been a miracle. Feel free to message me if you have any questions about it, I’m happy to talk more!!

      I'm on Cymbalta (duloxetine) and it has helped so much!!! Without it I'm up at night icing joints and such, but with it I can function.

        @outpickingdandelions I take gabapentin and amitriptaline and without both those I can't be hugged or touched

      I was on Gabapentin for a few years at first, but the side effects from lyrica were way less and it worked a lot better for my body. Your body does not appreciate skipped doses or stopping cold turkey with it though

      Lyrica is a life saver for me. But beware of the withdrawal

      Have you ever tried Lyrica? I've suffered since I was a kid and Lyrica really helped me

          @warriorrose I struggled so hard to get on amitriptyline because I was under 18- on gabapentin now but it should not be so hard for children with chronic illnesses
