Welcome Cara. emoticon have helped me keep going. I think without them in my life at the present time I would have given up. They have educated me on so many levels. I have my really bad days and I click on to a Spark Blog and get the boot in the butt to keep going. You have come to the right place. Let us help you. I take celebrex, Tylenol 2's and Tylenol Arthritis for my pain. It doesn't always help though but anything stronger makes me sick so I am limited. Advil extra strenghth was helping but because I take a low dose aspirin I was told I can't take them. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Hi Cara.
Another sincere "welcome to the team".
The support I feel around these threads keeps me uplifted. This seems to be a special group of people.
Sometimes hearing the simple common sense things like "keep drinking water" helps me, because if I don't think about it, I tend to forget the simple things.
I also have allready been able to see trends in my personal style. Currently I'm amazed at the low B12 and Folic Acid I consume on a daily bases. I might have to start taking that pescribed supplement again.
Everything has a connection to each of us. Sharing allows people to pick out some tads of info that could help. We all seem very open to anything that helps. Any "healthy" thing to lessen the pain.
I have OA, and I'm not very knowledgable to what can help, but I am finding a significant correlation between how I feel and what I eat. All the pain meds and anti-inflam drugs have side effects that my body can no longer handle. I'm trying alternative methodologies as I come across ideas.
I very grateful to this site and all you on the team that make the program work.
Sincerely, Julia

Skinny taste better than butter!

Hi my name is Cara - I've had a problem with my weight and arthritis for many years now. I do find that the arthritis keeps me from pushing myself into more strenuous exercise because I'm scared to death of a flare up. I was on Enbrel, and was switched to Humira but because I was working in the health care environment I was exposed to a lot of germs and with my lowered immune system a common cold turned into full blown disasters and hospital stays. Needless to say I requested to stop the Humira 6 months ago. I may not be getting sick like I used to, but the flare ups are back to being really terrible and I constantly carry a high sed rate in my blood work. My right elbow isn't fully functioning anymore and locks before fully extending. It's like waiting for my body to to slowly rust, and the extra weight I carry just adds insult to injury. So here I am, trying to be a healthier me. If anyone else has undifferentiated spondylaropathy that effects mostly mid ranged joints, I'd be happy to hear what's been or not been working for you. My thoughts go out to all of us!
