Bursitis remedies failing – Need Help
This is a follow-up post to this one on bursitis
Well, it’s been at least a week and a half that I’ve been dealing with bursitis in my right elbow. I started out taking salmon oil and tumeric, both of which have natural anti-inflammatory properties. Then, after researching a bit, I added MSM and vitamin C plus a homeopathic remedy called Traumeel.
The last two really have helped with pain but, so far, nothing has helped with the swelling. I can’t tell you how much I don’t want to have to go get this drained…..oh, can’t stand the thought of it really.
I’m posting again, asking for help. If anyone coming here has successfully dealt with bursitis in the elbow, I’d love to hear about how you did it.
I’m even resorting to NSAIDs and I don’t wanta do that either.
Because bursitis can lead to infection, a conditon known as septic bursitis, I am also applying anti-virals including oregano oil, a chapparal product called Shegoi, and a multi-herb salve that contains burdock and other herbs, including anti-virals.
My last hope is the bursitis patches I ordered from Australia but they are not even here yet. Believe me, if they work, I’ll be posting immediately and rejoicing.
Til then, if anyone else knows something I haven’t tried, I’d love to hear about it.
Update, 2017: I’m grateful that I haven’t had another issue with bursitis since this post. In general, I’ve found a few things that help keep my joints and muscles in better condition, given all the typing I do in a week. Arnica muscle rubs help and so does MSM. I use a cream that has both. There are many available online. If you don’t like topicals, could also use homeopathic arnica but I like the creams because I can apply directly where it hurts.
MSM is awesome too and helps a lot with pain and inflammation.
Of course, drinking enough good pure water is vital in all cases of inflammation. I often find, when I have a time of pain with joints and muscles, that I have neglected to drink enough water.
