I am wanting to try theracumin or soothe arthritis but I am unsure if I can start these now while taking the drugs
I am tempted to stop all medication as I am extremely frustrated with the pain and the way I feel

Brief Answer:
Please mention the disease you are having.

Detailed Answer:
Dear Madam,

Thank you for posting your query on HCM.

Well looking into your problem I would like to tell you that , I think your doctor will be starting you on TNF alpha inhibitor , that injectable drug that you are talking about . Theracumin is turmeric root extract , there is no contraindication as its just a supplement but I doubt if its going to heal your disease .

Also please let me know exactly what type of arthritis you are having so that I can guide you regarding pain relief according to that.

Take care.

Brief Answer:
You should continue the drugs as prescribed .

Detailed Answer:
Dear Madam,

Thank you for reverting back .

I know that pain can be really debilitating . I think you should try etoricoxib 90 mg once daily , its a good anti-inflammtory and will help you out. The new injectable drug must be biological therapy either ustekinumab or adalimumab which will help you out tremendously , so have some patience and comply with what your doctor is telling you. Its just 4 weeks that you have to pass . You can talk to your doctor regarding the same and get back to me with what he says .

Any other doubts please ask.

I have been diagnosed witth fibremyalgia in 1991 I also have arthritis. I am in so much pain at night with my knee and hip joint that I cannot sleep. Doctor gives me Tramadol and another mild pain killer but these dont stop the pain. I am also prescribed Furosimide for fluid retention. Could I possibly have a condition called gout? Also are there any new cures for fibromyalgia?
