FUNNY SUNDAY


I do not like the weekends much now that we are retirees, I like the continuity of the week, same radio, progs I like on tv etc. 
This weekend though has been an extra horrible one.
We were both tired for some reason and I think the weather is contributing to our slothfulness.
Roll on Spring and lighter dry days.  The damp affects both of us in different ways. 
Tom's breathing is a lot worse and my joints are more painful.

Talking of joint pain, for some reason tonight it is a lot better and I'm scratching my head trying to find the reason why this should be.
I feel sure that the food I eat may play a big part in things and I know that I have not had a shop coffee or bread for a couple of days, something to think about.
I did start a food diary but am no good at keeping these things up.

Anyone out there suffer from joint pains and has found that certain foods aggravate them, I would be interested to hear.

We sat down on the prom for a while and noticed that all the beach stones have been cleared and then it dawned on me that it was the half marathon today and they had to get their fingers out for the runners.

  1. I get headaches that I think are sometimes caused by the weather (barametric pressure) ... and I’ve been told that possibly joint pains that come and go (arthritis) may be connected to the weather too...

  2. My doctor told me a long time ago that being stuffed up or having headaches can be a lowering of the barometric pressure. Like before a storm. Arthritis seems to be worse in damp weather as well.

  3. Surprising that you and Tom had not entered the half marathon.You could have raised money for your favourite charity.

  5. what I eat definitely changes how my arthritis feels. Bread or white flower and sugar are the biggest culprits, but another one most don't know about is tomato. that includes sauces using tomatoes. run a search on foods that are bad for arthritis, there is a list.

  6. I don't know how true this is but in the past I have read that joint pain sufferers should avoid food from the nightshade family which includes tomatoes, aubergine and peppers.

  7. I'm interested in seeing the replies to your question as I hadn't considered food as a cause of my increasing joint pain. But I will now. I have heard that pineapple contains an enzyme that helps joint pain. I have no personal experience in whether it does or doesn't.

    Our daughter, who has fibromyalgia, finds cold and damp to be a factor in her pain. Fibro isn't joint pain, but it behaves like arthritis in reacting to those conditions.

    1. I had a couple of xrays on my thumb and hip and it showed just mild arthritis Jenny. If this is mild arthritis then I'm not looking forward to it getting worse. I do wonder if it is Fibro but can't muster the energy to go back to the doc, after all there isn't much they can do for either malady is there?

    2. There are a few medications, including one recently approved here, but our daughter hasn't been able to tolerate any of them (too many side effects). There has been a lot of trial and error and nothing at the end of it. You might have better luck, though. She takes a lot of Tylenol (acetaminophen) which worries me because she's been doing it for years now. Pain is such a miserable thing - no one can see it but you sure can feel it.

  8. As Simone says but also includes potatoes. Too much wheat based products and processed foods are also not good.

  9. I have been taking turmeric " pills" for more than 6 months now, and the pain I was feeling in my thumbs has largely gone, especially from my right hand where it was getting difficult to pick up the kettle or iron. If you decide to try them, don't go to a local health food shop for them......they are too expensive. I am on " Nutravit. Organic Turmeric with ginger and black pepper" and I take 2 every morning. Takes a month or so to take effect. I got them from Amazon and it is a black and orange " jar". Cant remember the price but very reasonable compared to our local shop!!

  10. Hubby suffers with arthritis and fibromyalgia and always find the wet/damp makes it worse.
    He eats lots of fruit and veg and steers away from white bread, having wholemeal instead. A couple of squares of dark chocolate every day the dr suggested? He's trying that at the moment and loving it!!!
