What has worked best for you in terms of reducing inflammation/pain?

      Heating pads are the absolute BEST when it comes to inflammation or pain, but some other recommendations I have are to stretch a lot and often and warm baths to soothe and relax those joints

      heating pads and pain relieving patches are a life saver!

      Honestly I'm not usually into big medications but methotrexate has been a lifesaver for me so far, along with an anti inflammatory diet. At first I struggled with the adjustments but honestly once you're used to it it's so freeing to be able to walk up stairs again. If those are too big of life changes I reccomend stretching after long periods of sitting still and definitely heat packs/pads!

      I love heated pads and staying hydrated but what I find helps a lot when I have bad inflammation is tart cherry juice (real cherry juice) I have bad inflammation in my knees almost every day of my life and going on walk on a treadmill on a incline really helps!

      I typically try to stretch out and personally humira has worked best for keeping my eyes and joints quiet. The only downside of that for me is that I feel tired the next day.

      Heating blanket! Weighted blanket! Try stretching when you can or walk around to lube up the joints

      Warm packs have actually been my lifesaver! Still learning what else helps!

      Any tips of your own?

      In terms of uveitis, I’m on Remicade and methotrexate right now which have kept me quiet for almost two years now. I still have joint issues, which are now worse because I have been working from home and sit for long periods of time.
