Same sided joint pain.

By hlrrt Latest Activity June 19 at 9:25 pm Views 2,049 Replies 6


This all seems unrelated, but in 3 days I have right handed swelling and pain, Right shoulder pain, and right knee pain?! What the devil is that? My left side is fine! I have been taking Motrin and using aspercreme, only minimal improvement in RO hand, shoulder and knee, which started after hand, are both worse. Any ideas?

    See discussion on same sided joint pain. Osteoarthritis might be a cause of your pain.

    Osteoarthritis is more localized on one side of the body. RA is inflammation all over the body, a systemic disease. Hope you are feeling better and see your Rheumatologist for pain relief.

    Hi hlrrt, nice to meet you. I am really glad you're here. Sorry you dealing with this, it's hard to live with pain. I am a therapist and not a doctor, so I don't have any helpful information to give you, I am sorry to say. I do hope you are working closely with your doctor on this. It's been awhile since you posted. How are you doing?

    There can be many reasons why your right side is more problematic for you, to many to give an accurate guess. You need something that will help change things at the source of your body inflammation. It runs in your bloodstream, and comes from your gut and diet. Please google, Black Seed Oil and its benefits and uses. Also google CBD oil and its benefits and uses. High grain diets and sugars cause more inflammation in our bodies, they also cause what is called leaky gut because they contain many lectins . These lectins join with a slime protein that lines your gut and pass directly through your small intestine walls into your bloodstream which causes autoimmune responses and inflammation in the body.

    As a member of NORML, I have read wonderful reviews of CBD oil and its benefits.
