I see a lot of discussion about pain.
I have been treated for cidp for about 4 years now with intragram and have slowly lost more mobility and balance wise but am still pretty happy at my ability to move around unassisted and do most things that i want to .
I have had osteo arthritis for about 40 years, both knees replaced heart bypass and sleep aeponea but to be honest i no longer have the excruciating pain i experienced in past years.
The biggest help to me at my worst times was to keep my diet really basic ( no rich sauces ,sugars , herbs, salt, red wine liquers or port,strong excessive coffee etc etc. Minimal intake on the evening meal and not overeat).and that made a real big difference.
Over and above that i am approved for up to 8 panadol osteo per day but for years i just take 2 in the morning and 2 in the evening. If a little worse i increase and sometimes i get smart and try a couple of days without but when i do that i can really notice the difference after about 2 days.
Guess we are all different.but if you havent tried my system before give it a go ..
Kind regards oziurn
