Alternative Remedies

Hi all,

My mum has extremely painful Osteo and Rheumatoid Arthritis accompanied with Fibromyalgia. She is in constant pain and meds are not really working for her. with all this going on, it's causing her to have sleepless nights, trouble moving and depression, causing weight gain (obviously making it worse). It feels like a vicious circle. Her GP keeps putting meds down her neck and they're not working.

I was hoping that someone could offer some advice or suggestions to help her out. I am looking for maybe some alternative remedies or something that could help ease her pain, it's becoming hard to watch and not be able to help. Anything helps.

Thank you all, I hope you can help
