    Welcome to the board. Sorry to hear about your problems.

    Have you seen a chiropractor or an orthopedic doctor?

    Some people have found glucosamine pills helpful. (You can buy
    them here. See "Shop Products" above.)

    Good luck.

    I have pain in my hands now, I have pain in the joints where my arms meet my shoulders, I've got severe arthritis in both knees, I've got pain in the one foot (prior fracture). I use the gel packs that have cloth covers and keep them in the freezer. When I get in real pain, I use the gel packs and they seem to cool down the pain so it may be I get more inflammation than anything else.

    Also, my bed is filled with pillows and I use them to get in comfortable positions throughout the night. I have a special pillow I use for my head and that feels good.

    Very early the other morning, I went to fill up my gas tank in the car, and I found that I did great until I put the gas pump in my car and was having trouble pulling the lever on it to start the gas flowing. My hands didn't seem to be strong enough and this was a first for me. I've always been a strong woman and this is very odd for me.

    I type on the computer every single day to force myself to use my hands and keep them moving. I try to do some things at home and have to take so many breaks, but at least I keep myself moving to some extent. My fear is that I'm going to freeze up or lose my ability to move.

    I hope you will see an orthopedic specialist especially when you have change in color of hands, especially to blue or purple. When I had an allergy reaction and my face was swelling, it went from bright red to bluish purple and it was of greater concern to the doctors (plus I was having some trouble with breathing too). So it's time to find out.

    I wish you the best and I hope a doctor can get you out of pain.

    First thing: Take DLPA (available at most nutrition stores in the amino acid section) Dosage varies 1 to 6 grams (1 gram equals 2 x 500mg capsules) You can find the dosage two ways. Start low and work up till you get pain relief or start high and work down, The start high way is a lot faster and DLPA is totally safe and very cheap. Time to relief varies by person and does not work for 1 out of ten people. If you see no relief in 30 days, you are that 1 of 10. Normally if you start high you should see relief in 48 to 72 hours.

    Second thing: Get Dr. Wong's Systemic Enzyme formula called Zymessence, take 4 capsules a day and twice a day if you can afford to. Once the enzymes get the inflammation under control and the damage starts to repair you will not need the DLPA anylonger. Until that time, if you quit the DLPA you will probably be in pain the next day.

    Here is a site to first check the side effects and interactions of DLPA before you consider taking it--there are concerns and you should read them. Do that with all supplements/medications before taking them because your safety comes first. http://www.webmd.com/vitamins-supplements/ingredientmono-653-PHENYLALANINE.aspx?activeIngredientId=653&activeIngredientName=PHENYLALANINE

    As to the Zymessence, there were no medical studies on that and instead incredible and fantastic claims as to tumors, arthritis, endometriosis, and much more that would be medically proveable if so. Many sites are selling this and again, it is expensive.
