Hello Anon

Thank you for writing!

We have an article about living with RA and what can be done naturally to help - cut and paste here: http://www.empowher.com/rheumatoid-arthritis/content/living-rheumatoid-arthritis-ways-reduce-pain

Advil and Naproxin are two OTC meds that can help.

To help manage fibromyalgia, a diet with a variety of healthy foods is recommended. This includes antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables such as blueberries, cherries, spinach and bell peppers. Nutritionists also recommend avoiding refined grains and eating more whole grains including brown rice, whole-wheat bread and whole-grain cereals to increase your intake of fiber and nutrients. Healthy proteins can be found in lean meats, cold-water fish, soy and beans. You should avoid processed foods that offer very little nutritional value such as cakes, cookies, fried foods and soda.

Exercise is also helpful, please see this article written for the EmpowHER community (cut and paste): http://www.empowher.com/fibromyalgia/content/exercise-still-best-treatment-fibromyalgia

As with RA - Advil and Naproxin are two OTC meds that can help.

I hope this has helped,
Susan
