I got a massage recently, and she paid a lot of attention to my arms and hands.
Naturally, my therapist helped promote the blood flow in my hands. For an hour after my inflamation was decreased tremendously,
and the morning after I was able to close my hands into a fist(I am not usally able to do that) I am lucky enough to have PPO insurance that covers massages because it is considered physical therapy.
I highly suggest you try this,
and if you are in the LA area, and have PPO insurance contact me, because I now work at a massage place that has a DR on site, and will take most PPO insurance.
If not, try geting a massage once a week, at least on your arms and hands. You can get these simple arm/hand massages at most nail salons at a decent price.
I hope this helps.
Love you all.
Thank you for the support.
Hello again!I posted a while ago and wanted to update everyone on my throat, it is the most bothersome sysmptom for me. I went to an ear nose and throat specialist in July, she put a tube down my throat and said all good up to the vocal cords go see a gastroenterologist. I went to see her today, she will do the same but down to my stomach. She says it sounds more like Sjogrens than like...
Today I went to see the Family Dr and the Rheumatologist. The family Dr took 3 tubes of blood to check my blood count, a metabolic profile, TSH, and A1C. My BP was 140/98, so he was concerned and talked about upping my meds. After some errands and a meal, I went to the rheumy who was concerned that my BP was too low. It was 103/70. You see, my meds had finally kicked it! Anyway, he took my hair...
