Suggest treatment for joint pains

unfortunately I don't think there is enough time or space to answer my health questions - I am 62 and overweight - get hiccups everytime I eat no matter what - I used to choke easily but now I am more wary of what I eat - wake up croaky every morning - slight sore throat - still have my tonsils and I do have quite a large tongue - can"t fold it in half like some people can. Have arthritis or swollen joints (rheumatoid?) get quitge a lot of coughs - have had a gastroscopy - no real problem stretched some part and and said I had H pylori I also have an inguinal hernia( bit I have never suffered from heartburn since my first child was born 40 years ago.

I also try to sleep with a c pap machine but only last until about 4 o clock then I just have to pull itoff.... Take high blood pressure tablets, water tablets, coXFLAM (15 mg) and two anti-depressants - welllbutrin 300 and depramil 40 mg.

The rest are general aches and pains, knees and feet, cramps in calves and I have sacs in my intestines - I still have my appendix - had a hysterectomy long time ago so no longer take hormones, have had my gall bladder out as well and had my bladder put in a "hammock" but I still have to wee about 3 times of toilet and still want to wee more when I get up. sorry shall I just order my coffin now (also have stiff neck and the things between my spine are degenerating) I spend a lot of time in my bed just reading and holding my dogs - do go out occasionally and I still look after my two small grandsons....; good luck and happy hunting (PS lasst blood test showed cholestrol too high and blood sugar too high and some liver problem _ I am trying to overcome all these the diet lifestyle changes but still don't exercise much because very shaky (arms dead in the mornings) and knees just give in ..
