good morning, difficult child fell asleep last night by 2 and than i was up with pain for the next hour. Past year it's been getting worse. dr. thinks it's rheumatoid arthritis, we are just waiting for my health insurance to kick in before we go doing blood work to confirm. my joints will swell so badly, it starts in my feet makes it's way up to my neck. joints in my hands last night were so swollen i had to pop 4 motrin and use ice packs to bring it down and kept hands elevated because it was so painful. it's funny too always on left side of body than right side. we took kids to coney island other day, and two hours into it i was done ankles totally swollen, knees just sat on a bench elevated feet. i've been looking into some at home remedies assuming this is what it is till i confirm with-dr. just says hot showers, fish oil can help which i already take. anyone else use any remedies??
