very pleased for you, hope you carry on in this positive phase, RA is a dead loss, I have it too, only mild at the moment, but the flares are horrible and depressing, hopefully I can hold it at bay for a while. good luckhighonlife wrote:Well, finally i have a reliable internet source.. so i can start posting again.
Have just come home from a four week stay at www.kurbadet.no (only norwegian) and have learnt A LOT! both about RA and my body.
The stay was buildt around my abillitys and prefercenses. A group of ten persons with RA was the foundation, with hot water gymnastics every morning 6 days a week, four days a week we had group aerobic/toning class. All instructors are physioterapists and all is lowintensity made for RA patients. Lectures by docs, nurses and other healthpersonell 5 days a week. In addition to this was the individual workouts approx. 2 each day and physical therapy every weekday.
The best with this place was the food, standard diet is lacto-ovo vegetarian with addition of fish 2-3 times a week. So the cooks where really good at making vegan a great alternative. It was so fun seeing a 96 year old woman really enjoying her nut roast.
I among the youngest there and the people was quite old-ish.. (most between 60-70). But the stay was so good for me. Loved it.

Meat was off the menu for half of those in the study group
Rheumatoid arthritis patients may be able to reduce their high risk of heart attacks and strokes with a gluten-free, vegan diet, a study suggests.
Thanks Frostfire, Ive just started MTX three weeks now, I have nausea for about 2 days after my shots, and find I get really tired at times,, so far no hairloss noticed, isnt all this fun!!I seemed to be in one flare after another, mainly my wrists, different fingers , and shoulders,, and feeling as if I had flu, I feel a bit achey more or less all over, but no particular stiffness, I am reluctant to take these very toxic drugs, but if they keep me mobile, and able to live my life as I want, then I must do so .Keep well, and moving, I intend to , somehow.Frostfire wrote:Are you still around ZIZI? I hope your flare-up has ended! I've been on methotrexate for over a year now, and to be honest it has made little difference so I take a whole mix of nasty stuff now . But I also had very little side effects, I think my body just doesn't absorb itT well. Keeps me mobile though
