Watermelon, welcome to our community family. I am sorry that you are having pain. It's not an easy life to live. I'm glad that you found us though. We are all here with different diagnosis but we all share chronic, irretractable pain. I have been diagnosed with Fibro, degenerative joint and disc disease, TMJ, cervical spondalytic myelopathy, long thoracic nerve palsy, scoliosis, lordosis, SI Joint disfunction with fractures, GERD, hypothyroidism, possible Sjogrens and a laundry list of other things that cause me rediculous pain. This group has been a Godsend to me. There are no judgements here. It's a really safe forum to come and let off some steam, ask questions, vent, cry, celebrate. It doesn't matter because we are all here for one another. We pray for each other, hold one another up when we are having rough times, celebrate with each other through triumphs. Have you been to the doctor for the joint pain? If so, what have they recommended? You may want to try heat or ice depending on which feels better to you. Perhaps a warm bath if you don't have mobility issues that prevent you from getting in the tub. You can always do gentle stretching and also use topical runs in the painful areas. They make over the counter rubs that have lidocaine in them and that can also help with some joint pain. (I may be wrong on the OTC on that particular rub but I'm sure someone will know better than I do). You will want to eventually put together a team of doctors that all communicate with each other to help you such as your pcp, a neurologist, a rheumatologist, physical therapy, psychologist, etc.. You can also choose to implement natural medicine such as herbs and essential oils, acupuncture, massage therapy, biofeedback, vitamins and other supplements. You need to discuss all of your options with your doctor based on your needs and any other health issues. I hope that you find the support and advice you are looking for and that you settle in and get to know us and let us get to know you. Sending you warm welcome, gentle {{Hugs}} and prayers that you have a peaceful and less painful day. πŸŒ»πŸ™πŸ»

Hello watermelon, Welcome to our growing family! I have pain in my ankles alot ,but mine mostly stays on the right one as I broke it at 8 years of age and the middle bone piece moved and attached it's self to another part of my ankle bone, but when it acts up, mainly on cold days such as today, I put a heating pad over it and I try to stay off it until it feels better. I do the same for my left because I fractured that one as an adult. Heating pad and Alieve to help the pain and swelling. Hope this helps!

Welcome to our community family Watermelon! I can't add anything because AlwayZ covered everything so well. I have degenerating disc & joint disease (OA, TMJD, DDD), fibromyalgia, sjogrens, hypothyroidism, mild valve regurgitation & palpitations, depression & anxiety, leg vein reflux & edema, pelvic congestion syndrome, pelvic floor dysfunction, migraines & cervicogenic headaches, GERD, facet stenosis, Sacroiliac joint instability, and others. I've passed out only once in the last several years, but I use to have short periods of blacking out (30-90 seconds). As AlwayZ said, having a good team of doctors is very important. And if you don't think the doctor is helpful, don't be afraid to look for a new one. I use to use aspercreme on my joints but the doc said it's not safe using it all over, which is where my pain j has been for 20 years. They prescribed Voltaren gel and its very gold. Others on here use various OTC ointments. I hope you will find ways to help reduce your pain, from many suggestions you'll likely find reading through other posts, and responses here. Hugs & prayers! πŸ˜·πŸ™πŸŒΌ
