Lupus Pain Relief

Author: Scott Michale

While lupus can be a debilitating disease, it doesn’t have to be. If you can find a way to relieve the pain of lupus, you can continue on with most of your normal, day to day activities.

Here are some ways you can find Lupus Pain relief

Consider NSAIDs

Lupus can cause pain, swelling and stiffness of the joints. NSAIDs (or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) can relieve all of these symptoms.

Lupus can also cause chest pains, usually the result of swelling around the heart and lungs. NSAIDs can relieve this swelling and the resulting pain.

There are many NSAIDs available over the counter. Some of them include aspirin, naproxen sodium (found in Aleve) and ibuprofen (found in Motrin). There are also prescription strength NSAIDs that are much stronger and can be prescribed to you by a doctor. However, be careful. Taking these drugs can cause stomach problems. In fact, if you already suffer from stomach problems, like ulcers, you should avoid taking NSAIDs.

Ask Your Doctor about Antimalarial Drugs

Many people suffering from lupus can go for long periods when their symptoms decrease, or even disappear altogether. On the other hand, they can also experience flares, periods when their symptoms, including pain, are unusually severe.

Doctors have found that antimalarial drugs, drugs meant to prevent and treat malaria, can also be used to prevent flares. And while there can be some side effects (like muscle weakness and vision problems) many find them easier to deal with than the pain a lupus flare can cause.

There was a time when those suffering from lupus just had to suffer with the pain their condition caused. But thanks to advances in medical science, you can find lupus pain relief.

    This is a toughy. Are their any natural cures for Lupus DLE and SLE? ?
    Lupus is an Autoimmune disease that triggers inflammation of tissue, joints and organs. Most Orthodox and conventional doctors say their isn’t a cure. However it has been suggested that Omega 3 acids help inflammation. Is their any other suggestions for this disease without having to rely on pharmaceutical drugs? Is there a cure?

    Are there any cures for the lupus disease?
    We think my friend may have lupus and I was wondering if there was any way to completely rid him of the disease. He wants to go to the Air Force and he may not pass the physical to do combat. If there is a cure, I am interested in the cost of the cure. Can someone please help us here? It would be really appreciated.

      No, it is an incurable autoimmune disease. There are treatments, but no cure.

      I’m sorry but the Air Force is not going to let your friend in.

      Good luck on your search….I will be thinking of you.

      I have not used this for cancer (my own illnesses) but there are sooo many patient stories in the book about MULTIPLE types of cancer recoveries….(breast, skin, colon, pancreatic…just a few). Wheatgrass therapies. People with cancer drink theraputic doses…ex. 10 oounces a day. There is something in Wheatgrass that basically kills the carcinogenic effects of cancer….plus it’s LOADED with nutrients and cleans the blood. YOu can get it at juice bars (Jamba Juice) or you can just grow in cheaply in your home this is what we do.

      The book has a green cover…called Wheatgrass:Nature’s Finest Medicine. Read reviews at Amazon or Barnes and Noble if you are curious….
