    I think the joints get to a point where there's just nothing there as far as ligaments or cartilage that can be helped. I'm 60 now, and can really see that happening. With all the skiing, racquetball, dancing I did when I was younger it's amazing I'm not worse off. But yes, when the joint pain is from inflammation, diet really helps.

    I got gluten'd yesterday. Our local Whole Foods has a new taco/burrito bar. Kind of a Chipotle thing. Tacos were only $2 each, and I decided to have a small organic corn tortilla with mine. It was delicious. But later I had heartburn, blew up like I was 6 months pregnant, and extra hip pain. Decided they must have one grill spot for both kinds of tortillas, even thought I asked if it was gluten free. SO not worth it!

    Oooh sorry about the gluten! I avoid it if at ALL possible, but sounds like it wasn't...

    I believe pain can be managed, whatever the cause...I'm working on it!

    My favorite therapist suggested adding a teaspoon of baking soda to a glass of water or other liquid to get the alkalinizing effect. This is day three, so i can't tell much yet, but I'm willing to try!

    And Reiki today!

    70 is the new 50--without the hot flashes!

    Goals: Feel good, be stronger, and hopefully kick that arthritis in the backside! Oh, yeah, and losing more weight would be okay, too.

    I've been doing PT for a couple of months now for my arthritic knees, and recently added an online class on Reiki, looking to find an in-person one. But most days, I have measurably less pain...this is GOOD.

    Had the Reiki treatment yesterday...that was NICE.

    I'll admit, Kate, I had to look up Reiki. It sounds great. I hope it helps you.

    My husband studied Reiki years ago, and has used it on me twice...it helped, both times. He says he is WAY out of practice, though, hence the classes!

    Well, I hope everyone is doing well and the Reiki is helping you, Kate.

    I am officially a member of the 50 and older club as of today! I don't know that it feels any different than 49, but its kinda cool to say I'm 50. Now if I could just get some good sleep, I'd be much better off. But that's a battle I've fought for at least five to ten years. Oh well. I go to sleep very easily, but don't usually stay that way. But considering its my only real complaint, I'll take it.

    Happy birthday! Welcome to the club.

    And yes, I think all the various things I'm doing are helping, thanks--I keep at it. Needing fewer pain med, somewhat less crippling, no feeling like the knee is going to give out, so I'm encouraged!

    Glad to hear things are a little better, Kate

    Thought I'd share recent success in dealing with a problem I've had since I was a teenager. I have had achy joints on and off most of my life. It was always worse when I didn't get enough sleep, and I discovered about 10 years ago that it was always worse when I had caffeine. About a month ago I started taking fish oil, something I had tried before but quit because it made me sick to my stomach. This time I read the directions and started taking it WITH food like they recommend. No problems with my tummy, and . . . for the first time in years I DON'T ACHE!!! It's pretty amazing. I was sick with something last week and got slammed with all over body aches and realized that was something I had lived with so often before it was my normal. Not anymore!
