10 Tips for Beating Morning Soreness and Body Pain
Would love to know what's the research that they are quoting from? Why is it so hard to add an easy to access bibliography on so many health websites ... -_-
If you click on the links, they lead to additional information. The author Margaret, who works for a .edu works hard to make complex studies accessible to us regular folks!
"Avoid products that cause inflammation (often dairy..." - this is false. Diary proven to remove inflammation. There was only one biased vegan research that "showed" that dairy causes inflammation. Better to double check this
Based on research, we will update to say “sometimes dairy” given the full-fat, processed components in much of American dairy.
The bathroom screams at me first thing in the a.m. The drs say they can't fix it either...Comes from diabetes and kidney disease caused by diabetes...then there is the hypothyroidism...pain all my life from poly-arthritis so didn't pay attention to the neuropathy...
The key is to seek medical help if the pain does not go away after an hour or two or gets worse after you get up. There is very little, short of a joint replacement that will help once there is joint damage. Rheumatoid and Psoriatic arthritis needs to be treated as soon as possible to prevent damage. I wish I would have been able to get treated for RA and PsA 20 years ago. Doctors insisted I was too young (mid 30s) to have either form of arthritis. They said I would be just fine if I exercised more (played or coached hockey for 2 hours every day) , ate an anti-inflammatory diet (triggered Crohn's), took the supplements and huge amounts of vitamin D to the point where I had toxic levels in my body. I was finally diagnosed with Juvenile onset for both forms and was able to start treatment at age 52. I have had to have both knees and a shoulder replaced.
Please do not wait if the things in this article do not help. I still do these things and watch what I eat so that it is easier to get going. Listen to your body and if need be a doctor that will listen to you.
I used to get out of bed in terrible pain. I sometimes could hardly walk until I would take my Collagen UC-II capsule. Then I also started taking Magnesium and a potassium tablet once a day and that helped also. I still had some discomfort when I got up and then started having heart palpitations. Doing some research for those I read that too much thyroid medication like Synthroid or Levothyroxine could cause palpitations and I realized my Dr. had increased my dose several months before. I decided to skip a couple of doses and the first night I didn't take it I woke up pain free. Later my blood work showed I was over-dosed on the Levothyroxine. I am off of it for a while until another lab is done and am still pain free.
Tip for Overcoming Morning Soreness:
Most people are low in Magnesium...Soak feet in Epsom salt and warm water for 20 minutes before bed...
