Haven’t been able to fish for a few months now due to pain in my wrists and found out this week that it is rheumatoid arthritis. Can’t get an appointment with the rheumatologist until March. Anyone know of options to help with the pain? Not being able to fish is really bumming me out.

Strong pain creams on a regular basis? I use Bio-freeze for most of my aches and pains, but also use a prescription pain cream that I get from my step-mom and it seems to help well. It's called Diclofenac. I believe it's specifically used for rheumatoid arthritis.

Thanks Okie. Diclofenac is what I am taking now, along with voltaren cream, but not helping much yet. Ice packs help but it’s just temporary. Hopefully the Rheumatologist comes up with something.

The Voltaren did not seem to help my wife much. Gotta be something better out there.

DMSO

For those unfamiliar. Its been used on livestock forever. I 1st found out about its use on humans when working with sprinters. As with anything a little goes a long way. There are a lot of articles out there but i picked the newest most reputable I could find.

Been studying on this quite a bit and DMSO might be an option. Seems like with everything else, there are side effects. Apparently I have had it a long time and did not even realize it. I will update after my Rheumatologist visit on March 2, but right now I am taking the Diclofenac, using the Voltaren cream, taking a turmeric supplement, and ice packs. Seem to see slight improvements, but still having issues with flexibility and pain in my wrists. Going to try to fish for the first time in several months this weekend.

Your diet can help tremendously. My wife was diagnosed about 18 months ago while in her 40s. She has an advanced case of it. She had lot a lot of dexterity in her hands. She is not one to complain or he sick but its been a rough ride seeing how quickly it has progressed.

She finds better relief from avoiding certain foods as many xause swelling etc. Look it up. Lots of info out there.

Thanks Mark. Same here with the advanced case and I just turned 50. I will look into the diet. I don’t eat like I should anyway, so probably need to do that anyway😁
