NSAID's etc.: Omega 3 fatty acid & magnesium supplementation can be beneficial. Avoid excess sugar and low quality carbohydrates. Don’t add extra salt to food and avoid processed foods. Avoid caffeine and alcohol use . Consider use of acupuncture or acupressure as well as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications.
