Experiencing Rheumatoid Arthritis



Encouragement and hope is needed for all who are suffering from RA or any form of Arthritis. I would like to accomplish that by sharing experiences and solutions to make RA easier to live with, to find sympathy and understanding or even just to complain t

Affordable Therapeutic Exercise to Combat Arthritis

2016-02-10T07:32:20.605-06:00

When you are suffering from Arthritis you know how debilitating the pain can be. You may not be able to do much, if anything at all, for days on end. To spare the joints and escape the majority of the pain, being immobile seems to be the answer. This will certainly feel good where the affected joints are concerned, but it will take its toll on the muscles. The muscles play a key role in



Exploding Head Syndrome

2015-07-07T06:21:19.277-05:00

I have been extremely busy lately. I am so overwhelmed at times that I have the feeling my head is going to explode. It won't of course, but it can lead to a condition called Exploding Head Syndrome. I am not kidding; there really is such a syndrome. The people suffering from it can experience loud noises in their head which resemble the sound of a gunshot, explosion, roar, or slamming door.



Going For The Gold

2015-07-04T06:32:51.268-05:00

I am still supposed to see a specialist for the pain in my back. I just haven't gotten around to it and I am not entirely sure I want to. I saw one several years ago and the verdict was that the pain was due to wear and tear. I was also told that when it would get too bad, the only thing that would be helpful was surgery. I would like to avoid that if possible and might try Regenerix Gold. This



Round Two

2015-02-06T08:44:53.234-06:00

After having taken a week's worth of antibiotics, I had to go back to the doctor for a follow-up. She hoped the meds would have done the trick and although I was feeling a lot better, I was not well yet. I still had a slight cough and the tiresome feeling as if I was battling the flue. She was not satisfied with the results and decided it was time for round two. Ding, ding, ding; in one corner



Tracheal Bronchitis

2015-01-30T08:37:39.888-06:00

I had been battling a cold for almost two and a half weeks when it finally seemed to be clearing up a week ago. That's good, because I was getting kind of weary of it. Well, nothing it always what it seems; the cold came back this weekend and with a vengeance. A severe cold, lots of coughing, and a swollen, painful throat had me feeling pretty bad. Experience has taught me that when I suffer



Let Your Voice Be Heard

2015-01-28T12:24:12.981-06:00

This post brought to you by YourCareMoments. The content and opinions expressed below are that of Experiencing Rheumatoid Arthritis.I had to see my General Practitioner yesterday due to severe cold symptoms. The care that was given was excellent, but the time involved was ridiculous; from arrival to exit took over two and a half hours and the vast majority involved waiting.I am quite sure that



Lemons And Lemonade

2015-01-22T08:29:29.156-06:00

It has been a while since I was able to post, but you probably know how that goes; first the Holidays, then sickness, and having to deal with the lemons life gives you. The latter was the biggest problem which sure left us with a sour taste in our mouths at first. However, that is just the first bite. After that you find ways to sweeten the pill and make tasty lemonade so to speak. Even though



Heal Mind, Body, And Soul At The Art Gallery

2015-01-20T14:29:11.114-06:00

This post brought to you by Art Gallery. The content and opinions expressed below are that of Experiencing Rheumatoid Arthritis.I have visited museums before, but I have never been to an Art Gallery. I sure would like to and indulge in the vibrant colors and get lost in the scenes from the hand of Artist Sam Park for instance.The Amour d’Art Fine Art Gallery is featuring the works of several



First And Foremost

2014-11-07T08:00:32.007-06:00

Time has been sliding by and I know I haven't been posting for a while. My time has been taken up by school, cub scouts, and other gazillion things to remember and do. What little time we have to ourselves is (involuntarily) being put towards trying to catch up and recuperate from all the hustle and bustle. If all of that hasn't been enough yet, Holiday season is right around the corner. We are



It's Flu Shot Time

2014-10-03T09:04:39.319-05:00

It is that time of year again when you need to get your flu shot. The sooner you do it, the better. That way you will be protected when the flu makes its round and it is already in the process of doing so. We got ours a few days ago. Those shots normally don't give us any grief, but this year is different. Hubby has been feeling flu-like since the day he received the shot and I am sniffling and



Immune Complex Disease

2014-09-05T09:48:32.681-05:00

I suppose we all have heard about auto immune diseases and what that could mean for your physical wellbeing when you end up with one. RA for example is an auto immune disease, but there are many others. Were you aware of what Immune Complex Diseases are? I wasn't. Well, when antigens and antibodies form clusters and are not removed from the bloodstream, but keep circulating, they can get stuck



Perfect Hands

2014-08-22T09:31:53.004-05:00

Hands can tell a lot about a person's health. They didn't have to point that out to me, because I am already fully aware of that. My hands clearly show the signs of severe RA. My fingers have grown outward to a point where I could steal around a corner, as I always jokingly say. All joking aside though, studies have proven that the length of your fingers is a good indicator when it comes to the



An Ideal Solution

2014-08-20T11:02:54.226-05:00

We have become more and more health conscious over the past several decades and that is still an ongoing process. Diet and exercise are highly recommended by our physicians and many have made an effort to incorporate it in their daily routine. We sure don't have to suffer from any deficiency since vitamins and supplements are readily available over the counter. One would think we ought to be in



What Are Your Nails Telling You?

2014-08-08T10:16:32.916-05:00

Not that long ago I read that your hands can tell you a lot about your health. The next time you clip your nails for instance, you may want to examine them up close and look for discolorations under the nails. It is said that when you spot a brown or black stripe under the nail of your thumb or big toe, it could be a sign of skin cancer. Autoimmune diseases such as lupus and RA could cause a red



Those Few Extra Steps

2014-07-25T07:13:35.453-05:00

If you are a frequent reader of my blog you already know that consuming dark chocolate (in moderation of course) is accredited with many health benefits. A recent study has shown that it has another benefit. For those who suffer from PAD (Peripheral Artery Disease) there is good news: it enables you to walk a little farther and a little longer. PAD is a rather common disease among the elderly



Practicing Patience

2014-07-11T07:01:31.977-05:00

It has been a while since I posted, but there are times when either nothing is happening or everything seems to happen all at once. The past couple of weeks can definitely be filed away under the last category. Out of the blue, I am confronted with a muscle spasm and my back goes out. It took several days to recover and I had barely resumed my daily chores when the grandchildren arrived. They



Questions And More Questions

2014-06-21T06:37:37.587-05:00

We tend to run into things which are beyond comprehension. I had one of those moments not too long ago after a check-up with my rheumatologist. A tendon in my arm was giving me some problems and she decided to take x-rays of my hands and wrists to ensure I hadn't accidentally broken anything. A few days later the nurse called me with the results. It so turns out that the RA had severely



The Choice

2014-06-13T07:53:02.686-05:00

The little birds, whose parents made their nest in the wreath on our front door, were growing really well. The oldest one had already gotten strong and bold enough to take a look at the world around it. Sitting on the edge of the nest, it got a good perspective. It didn't budge when I came around and took some pictures, while its sibling was safely tucked away in the back. Well, it didn't turn



No Small Potatoes

2014-06-07T08:53:20.003-05:00

Potatoes have been a staple food for thousands of years. That doesn't come as a surprise, because they are highly nutritious, easy to digest, and boost our energy. They are also high in vitamin B3, vitamin B6, potassium, copper, vitamin C, manganese, phosphorus, fiber, and pantothenic acid. Due to the antioxidants they contain, potatoes are an excellent food keeping your heart healthy. The



New Residents

2014-05-23T09:07:36.885-05:00

We couldn't believe the birds decided to pick the wreath on our front door as their place of residence. A few weeks ago we thought they might find another spot to nest, seeing how our front door would open regularly and scare them away, but they didn't. A sturdy nest was built quickly, five eggs were laid, and within no time two little baby birds are presently crowding the nest and filling our



Eggs: Healthy And Nutritious

2014-05-09T14:06:25.439-05:00

I have been watching our egg-intake for years now. This was mainly based upon previous study results and warnings. Those warned us that consuming too many eggs (the yolk in particular) contributed to clogging of the arteries and hence could cause heart problems. It always seemed strange to me that mainly the yolk would do that to a person since it has got all the building blocks for new life in



A Place To Call Home

2014-04-28T09:49:55.114-05:00

Our sweet dog Flo managed to pull down the window box, hanging on our storage building, on several occasions. It is filled with artificial plants, but it looked gorgeous and gave the building a little pizzazz. She may have liked it too, tried to gather up a bouquet, and ended up scattering it all over the yard. I managed to save much of it and it still looks very pretty. I am apparently not the



The Benefits Of Dark Chocolate

2014-04-21T11:10:11.903-05:00

I sure hope y'all had a wonderful and very blessed Easter! It is the Holiday where we celebrate the rising of our Lord Jesus Christ, but all too often it is associated with colored eggs, Easter egg hunts, and the permission to indulge in a smorgasbord of chocolate. Being a chocoholic, I am by no means opposed to the last. It is even considered healthy to eat 10 to 20 grams of dark chocolate



Ouch

2014-04-14T05:55:46.668-05:00

I am not sure how it happened or what I did, but I must have pulled a tendon in my right arm. Each time I lift something it hurts pretty badly. When I make a sudden or wrong move, the pain is immobilizing. This has been going on for several weeks now and it wasn't getting any better. I saw my rheumatologist last week and told her about it. Her advice was wearing a splint and she had some blood



Steak At Stake?

2014-04-07T08:53:11.125-05:00

People are considered to be omnivores. What that means is that they are no picky eaters and like to consume meat, as well as fish, vegetables, nuts, and fruits. I truly enjoy a tasty steak, pork chop, piece of chicken, burger, etc. Without it, my meal is not complete. I sure wouldn't make a good vegetarian and that is probably why that life-style never appealed to me. There are a lot of
