Reducing Lupus Pain
According to Mark Jarrett, MD from Staten Island University Hospital, a physician needs to identify first the main cause of the discomfort and at the same time, rule out other potential causes. With that, you could get some relief through using heating pads to affected areas. For some instances, you can take warm showers to reduce the stiffness.
On the other hand, you can try to apply cold packs. When your joint is severely inflamed, be sure to handle them carefully. If it’s possible, rest and then elevate it.
