So in general i am doing okay. Unfortunately, no matter how better I get my hands, wrists, ankle and feet are in CONSTANT pain. I type for my job, have to travel to work and I am a part-time student (luckily right now is online) which just make it so much worse.
I use compression gloves, muscle pain relief cream and hot and cold compresses. I have told my rheumy and i said i didnt want to be on painkillers (they’ve hardly ever helped as much, i take enough pills as it is and it doesn’t address the problem!). They didn’t find any inflammation or damage in a ultrasound or an x-ray and im due to have an MRI scan to see if they missed anything. When I asked what is next step if that also shows nothing, he went on to say that I should just exercise and try meditating to help deal with the fact im in pain...i already exercise and it helps my other joints/muscles just not these ones. I personally thought they would suggest like a pain clinic or physio or further tests! I feel as if i am not stressing my pain enough🤦🏽♀️
Has anyone had any experience with how their non-inflammatory pain was dealt with? Any further advice? And does anyone know of any cold/hot gloves and sock products?
