Those of you with muscle aches / pain - what do you take to ease it?

Positive Lyme test, diagnosed babesia clinically, treating both with rife and herbals. No longer tolerated abx. MTHFR C677T

Pain level most days is in the 6 - 7 range on a scale of 1 - 10.

Gluten free, egg free, msg free, no artificial sweeteners.

Ache / pain is worse on cloudy, rainy, snowy weather - usually he can predict the weather a day ahead.

Thanks!

What helps me:

Epsom salt bath soaks

Homeopathic Arnica (dissolve pellets under tongue as needed, or 3-4x/day for prevention)

Electrolytes & plenty of fluids (dehydration can cause muscle pain)

MannaMe- "muscle pain worse for snowy, rainy weather, storms"

Some common homeopathic remedies for that are:

Homeopathic Rhododendron
http://abchomeopathy.com/r.php/Rhod

or

Homeopathic Dulcamara
http://abchomeopathy.com/r.php/Dulc

Each time I take a remedy I need to differentiate to see if I can find one that fits the overall picture BEST, especially, I pull in the sensation of the pain and also the mental and emotional state and the modalities like "worse before a storm". There are more remedies for this symptom so if I don't see that the common ones work I look at other possibilities.

For pain I go with a potency of 30c over a 6c, as I think a
6c might not be strong enough. But if that is all that is available I might just have to repeat a 6c more often. If I don't see any change in 3 doses then I stop taking it because it is not the right remedy and has no action for me.

I also stop taking it if there is aggravation. Sometimes a remedy can aggravate and but then afterwards I see an improvement. I can stop any homeopathic remedy with some strong peppermint oil on my tongue.

I'm not a medical doctor and these are just my opinions.

I have weather dependent issues also and curiously my doc recommended I go to a tanning bed... now not like people that do it to tan but maybe once a week or every other week when the weather is bad. I found especially during cold weather this has helped take an edge off as well as help with my mental stability when I am in pain. I also use a hot tub almost daily as well as massage and meditation for pain. I force myself to stretch but it does help even if it is painful.

I cannot take pain killers or NSAIDs because I am on Low dose Antigen therapy and cannot take meds or supplements. I also did a food elimination challenge and found I have several food sensitivities that were not the norm eggs, dairy, gluten and eliminating them has helped a great deal.

Also muscle cramping and tightness may be helped with potassium and magnesium. But I would just start trying things and find what works for you.

I also see a energy chiropractor that helps with a lot of my nerve related pain so you might see if there is anyone around you that can do that kind of work as they are hard to find.

I used to take oral clindamycin, 150mg a couple times a day and that took the fibro pain to zero! It stopped working after 5 years and now turmeric majorly reduces muscle and joint pain.

Took Flexeril for a long time, but at night only. Bonus that it also helps you sleep.

During the day, ibuprofen.
