Re: How do you manage your everyday pain? Any pain relief?

Gentle - and I mean gentle - exercise does wonders for joint and general pain. Gently stretching the muscles keeps the body supple and reduces pain. It doesn't have to be fancy exercises like tai chi or anything like that: just moving the legs in and out and lifting and stretching the arms is good enough. Short, slow, walks also get the body supple. Therefore reducing pain. I'd certainly take this advice and not just rely on painkillers. However, it is still important to take the medication a doctor prescribes. If you're unsure about this advice, you can see what your doctor says. I am certainly not advising you go jogging or running: just that you do gentle walking.

I do hope I've helped.
