I tried warm water therapy. I loved it while in the water. My problem was getting out. My legs felt like they were surrounded by cement blocks when I tried to get out! They were so heavy. I also have R/A and know how important it is to move each day or I will get so stiff that movement is then almost impossible.
Tried Lyrica, it gave me double vision at times. I will have to research though the neurotransmitter Substance P. I have run across this before but I have since forgotten what the article said! lol So will research it again.View Thread
I have mentioned I have no insurance since I was laid off due to downsizing at my company. I could not afford the Cobra benefits or private insurance. Private will not cover my pre-existing problems. During my research though I found a site that is government funded pre-existing insurance. The only requirements are; You have had no previous insurance for 6 months and have a pre-existing health problem.
You just look up your state and it will tell you how much the premium will be, as same for all in that state. I am waiting until our move to WV is complete to sign up. Of course as always NJ is more and the state runs it rather than federal in NJ.
Yes, we have to do our research. I was taking Vit E and noticed my blood pressure was going up. Not normal for me as I tend to run on the low side. Well researched and found it's rare but it does raise blood pressure in some people. I went off it and my blood pressure went right back down again.
I also noticed you do have to watch fillers as MiMi says too, as I take cinnamon for my diabetes but one brand gave me heartburn. I try to stick to two places Puritan Pride and Swansonvitamins for my supplements. I also sometimes use Walmart especially when they have my omega's on sale.View Thread
