Hi all, hope this finds you all as well as can be!
I had an appointment with my gp yesterday to review the tablets I am taking. She was saying to me how it could still be a long road to a diagnosis and as I am struggling to find pain relief from the medication she has suggested things I can do to help myself while I am waiting for a diagnosis. She says a healthy balanced diet is a good place to start (which I have anyway as I am on slimming world) and she suggested swimming and pilates as excercises to help in the long term wih the joint and muscle pain. Just wondering if people have tried either of these? Did you find they helped? How much is good to start with (don't want to over do it!)?
Also I was watching 'food hospital' on channel 4 the other night and there was a lady on there who suffers with rhuematoid arthritis and the dietician gave her an anti-inflammatory diet to follow. This included a lot of omega 3. Has anyone found a diet rich is omega 3 helps with your pain? I was thinking possibly buy some omega 3 capsules to see if they help? What do people think of this?
Thanks in advance for any replies xxx
