its an anti inflam think should have taken it as soon as started hardly slept last night bits of me that dont normaly hurt were realy bad last night made it seem worse as been doing so well sod it :-( will take them again to day as just cut grass at front of house only takes 10min but been a while since could do it so not taking any chances will take 4 next week will kill or cure (some hope) this stupid arth. doc gave me them 4 when have flare ups to stop damage ,work well 4 me it feels great when can walk with out pain and stiffness so very tempted to take all the time but dont want body to get used to them as then would end up on some heavy medication which i want to put off as long as possible hope u not to bad today:-)

Hi Val

thing is, seems to me, that u need to take one on a daily basis, they really do help protect you, or at least help stop inflamation begining...it might b worth a trip bk to the Rhummy, or the GP and ask, at the end of the day Val, U may well be trying to stop having to take the DMARDS anti TNF meds most of us r on, but it does stop the pain, flare ups, and hopefully progressive damage...side affects are far less that the damage this condition causes... mb best to have a long chat with your rhummy and talk about your worries, they arnt that bad, honest

love jill x

ps sorry Val, so may ppl on here I cant remeber everyones exact conditon, have u been diagnosed officilly witgh R.A. or infla Art? is it Osteo etc? there are hundreds diff types I know

think u shld go c tho Val, then when a picture starts forming for the Doc, they kinda take a person more seriously, like ususally they wait to see how your symptoms are, sometimes some ppeoples symptoms go, so they wait and c if u return to see them, then if u emntion other things related th arth they begin to listen and get u the specialist help u need, pain I know going to c the Doc, but it is worth it... its builing up a profile of your symptoms, so tht is important ....gtoona go aldis next week, get me some cider(said in conrnish accent! LOL
