    Holding a bar of soap in your hand can help relieve the discomfort in the fingers and placed in socks at night is also helpful for the toes... (save all those little soaps from your stay at hotels).. Melting Coconut oil with 3-4 cloves of Garlic
    ( browned in a pan ) cool and then rub gently into the muscle area can also relieve pain. Turmeric ( in yellow mustard) is another remedy that has been known to relieve pain...(multiple uses check helpful hints @ kjforce.wordpress.com)

      Not a fan of Pharm/Rx meds...advise Natural Holistic treatment whenever possible, due to possible harmful effects to GI and Stomach issues, just my thoughts...

    I have arthritis in my hands and cervical spine.  I have to take alieve every day. 

    Humidity causes me a great deal of pain and discomfort.  I try to stay in a cooler environment. 

    I also bought a bed to help me rest easier at night.  Walking has helped me a lot. 

    I also had to go through physical therapy twice.

    There are several forms of arthritis and Relief will depend on which type you have and what joint is affected. For most types, you will need to rest the joint affected from heavy work, especially if it is a weight bearing joint such as the knee, hip, and  spine joints. you will also need a non steroid anti inflammatory drug such as ibuprofen to relive pain from the inflamed joint. For types of arthritis such as Gouty arthritis that come as a result of accumulation of sodium salts of uric acid in the body, or Rheumatoid arthritis, you may need some special drugs in addition to the above treatment. you need to see a doctor for full examination and assessment. You will also need the services of a physiotherapist to give advice on friendly exercises that will help improve joint function, as well as reduce any excess weight that is usually an aggravating factor in degenerative arthritis. I hope this is helpful

    Cherries are the most recommended natural supplement, as well as glucosamine, and chondroitin. Cherries have the natural substance that blocks cox-2, the same as over the counter nsaids. Such as aleve, and ibuprofen. It may be taken in supplement form, as well as in juice form. With out the damage to the lining of the stomach. As far as glucosamine supplements, look for a product that contains MSM. MSM is a natural sulfur compound necessary for connective tissue health. Include in the diet plenty of sulfur containing foods, such as garlic, and onion. Pure clean filtered water is also a benefit, and will help with stiffness. Keeping the body hydrated is an important factor in any health condition. 1/2 ounce per pound of body weight is the usual amount necessary to remain hydrated.
    Applying heat, or ice to the affected area is also beneficial. Rotate between the two, and use which ever is more beneficial to you. None of us are the same, do what makes you feel better.
    Dr. Tietalbaum is the holistic doctor for pain. He is a renowned Dr. that has devoted his career to helping those with CFS, and Fibromyalgia. He has formulated a pain supplement which contains all natural ingredients, beneficial to all pain. Here is the link;  http://www.amazon.com/dp/B000BCYQNY/ref … 70XHCH2HY8
    I have written an article about pain. Dependant upon which form of arthritis you have, will dictate the formulas to use I hope this is beneficial to you. http://artist101.hubpages.com/hub/Natur … ney-Stones
    **** A word of caution: While many of the over the counter meds, and supplements are considered safe, combining certain medication over the counter with prescription meds can be very dangerous. ALL Nsaids are blood thinners, as well as many herbal preps, and vitamins. Combining can lead to the blood being too thin. The first symptom is easy bruising. If you have any question about supplements, otc or otherwise, it is best to consult a pharmacist, BEFORE taking any preparation. Make them aware of all medications, over the counter, prescriptions, vitamins, and supplements, that you take. Being an educated patient is your first line of defense.****
