Pain question please!

In the last 1 1/2 I have had two hand,wrist,arm surgeries and have developed
arthritis in both wings. I was prescribed Percocet for pain management. However, I am
on day 7 without the meds. My hands etc are killing me as I need them for work on my computer.
Does anyone have suggestions on what type of meds to try? Please, please any help.
Thanks!

Hey Tiredin Tempe.

1. I just read a study on Glucosamine , comparing its effectiveness for pain relief with the effectiveness of Ibuprofen.
After 3 weeks of Glucosamine sulfate supplementation, it became much more effective than Ibuprofen.
1500mg is the recommended dose, once daily for pain relief and to rebuild
joint tissue. No known side-effects
Chondroitin sulfate also has shown to reduce pain, swelling and rebuild joint tissue. 1200mg daily. No known side effects.
  Make sure they're  from good quality sources.

Another great supplement with excellent anti-inflammatory action is Bromelain -an enzyme from pineapple- 500mg daily. Not indicated when on blood thinners. It's also a very "smart" PH regulator - acid or alkaline!

Avoid vegetable and seed cooking oils like the plague!
Switch to the healthiest and most stable oil available: organic virgin coconut oil. For more info go to the coconut research website

Also avoid arthritis forming foods- fast food, sodas including diet, sugar,
any sweets and breads, white flour, cakes, junk food, chips,candy bars,
alcohol, etc.

Hope this helps.
Cheers!
Niko
