This is a newer symptom for me and its taken me down hard. My hands and knees( one way more than the other) are so stiff and painful. I am routating meloxicam one day with tylenol and aleve another day with tylenol.
For me, 20mg of prednisone once a day for about a week helps kill the pain completely. Celebrex works but very slowly...too slowly to be able to function normally during the pain. For wrists: I’ve found that wearing a hand brace overnight (to keep it immobile for a decent amount of time) plus the Celebrex also helps it fade faster.
When it was in my knees, prednisone was the only thing that helped. :-/
Hope you feel better soon.
Please do you need a Pain Managment doctor and if you have a indoor pool that will help to staying active help even if it’s very hard trust me once you get up and take a very hot shower you will feel better but like u said don’t over do it no more then 20 to 30 minute walk out less because then you will be in a lot of pain and swollen I hope that can help you let me know if it help you please
Hot shower helps me and believe it out not small walk but don’t over do it and inside not out side the sun is our enemy. If it don’t help then you have to get help with pain management clinic but make sure they are the one that gives you pain killers and they will help you with other medication.
Epsome salt baths,tylenol,hot showers,and cbd(I have salve I rub on the joint and I also vape it)
