I heard from my rheumatologist that hyaluronic acid is not going to any good (or bad) for me. She strongly endorsed Omega 3s and suggested that I stick to flax based supplements because fish based ones aren't controlled for toxicity by the FDA). I have found that an even better way to get my Omegas is through ground flax seeds and chia seeds. I buy them at Whole Foods and throw them on or in anything. Tastes really good and are now "must haves" in my morning cereal.
I also talked to doctors and researched delayed response allergy testing and am not confident in its reliability and so I went down the typical allergy path. By avoiding my food allergies and containing my environmental allergies, I feel better overall.
My insurance company has assigned me a "health coach" (are my bills too high for them?) and I happened to get a doctor who will work with me who specializes in chronic pain and dermatology. Doesn't that sound like vulvodynia? During our one hour conversation, she suggested that I really up my Omega-3s to 4000mg/day and also take hyaluronic acid orally (when I went to the store there are creams made of this and when I asked in pill form I almost got acidophilis (not sure why so watch out)to 4000mg/day. The hyaluronic acid can apparently strengthen ligaments. I bought Hydraplenish by Nature's Way at Whole Foods. She said to take the hyaluronic acid for 2 weeks to see if I got improvement. I am on day 4. She also suggested I consider delayed allergy response testing (different from regular allergy testing) and I might look into this. Her general take was that I have a lot of inflammation and that needs to be managed down. I will talk to her again on December 6th.
