my feet have been hurting for a few months. the past few days my knuckles have been hurting. now the largest joints in my toes are feeling the same way, and my left shoulder aches. today finger joints other than my largest knuckles in my hands started hurting.

it seems as if I have arthritis now, and it hurts when it gets cold. I do not recommend this.

just for the record: I am pretty sure that it isn’t gout. but maybe im a lucky gouthaver. does the omega ratio thing work for normal arthritis too?

the symptoms don’t match

quote:

Symptoms of gout include severe pain, redness, and swelling in joints, often the big toe

no redness, no swelling, not my big toe. there’s pain. which is also a symptom of regular arthritis, which is much more common

wait, do you think that all joint pain is gout? lol

the omega ratio thing is for inflammation in general, but the kind of painful inflammation from osteo arthritis seems to respond well, the pain part at least. which as far as actual quality of life goes may be worth looking at, as least as far as it’s relatively easy to address

cool, thanks! I’ll give it a shot.

old person tv shows that rule:

* Frasier
* this old house
* Star Trek (original, tng, ds9)
* inspector Morse (and related, incl endeavour)
* antiques road show
* jeopardy
* everything on that Japanese channel that’s on public access where it’s like 10 minutes of world news followed by 30 minutes of a man sharpening knives followed by music over a video of cherry blossoms

inspector lewis belongs on that list too, imo.

e: i suppose you already covered that with “related” though. im just being a pendant a life alert pendant

yeah I was actually thinking of Lewis when I wrote Morse but I suck at memory (lol old); the non-endeavour Morse series is by far the weakest and Lewis is the best imo

insight like this is why I’m voting beep 2020

I never heard anybody mention “water intoxication” back in the day. there was a lot of pearl clutching about raves, but “you’ll get so high you od on water” is new on me. everything I heard was the exact opposite, ie dehydration, overheating, etc 🤷‍♀️

today I asked my parents for arthritis tips

they gave them to me, so i ordered a pile of glucosamine, some Australian dream (it is an arthritis cream, not weed :( ) and some blue emu (they have not tried this, but mentioned it as an alternative to Australian dream so I figured I'd be their guinea pig)

yeah motherfuckers I'm gonna stop hurting all the time!!!!!

thanks echi! I don't really know my omega breakdowns but we eat salmon semi-regularly and don't cook with seed oils so it's probably fine. but I'll get some fish oil anyway cause I mean, why not?

i have been using Australian Dream and Blue Emu for arthritis. They seem to help quite a bit. maybe it's placebo but I hurt a lot less so idgaf

also I'm taking glucosamine but that apparently won't even start helping for months (also I frequently forget to take it in the morning) so 🤷‍♀️

also I still haven't got the blood test so I don't even actually know if it's arthritis lol

well the blood tests are to rule out other things more than they're _for_ arthritis

also gotta schedule a sleep test v_v

my dog is really old. we went to a restaurant that was on a wharf yesterday and I had to carry him part of the way back to the car.

as I was loading him into the back seat he lunged all 65lbs of himself towards the car.

what I'm saying is a poodle threw out my back

I use those forearm band things for just what jonny says and they're great

I also use snakeemu oil (Australian Dream) on my hands for arthritis and it works p well. it also works on my foot, which turned out to be a tendon thing, and the snake oil chipped the inflammation out enough that I'm not constantly re-injuring it which is nice
