    Use of heat, such as applying heating pads to aching joints, taking hot baths or showers, or immersing painful joints in warm paraffin wax, can help relieve pain temporarily. Be careful not to burn yourself. Use heating pads for no more than 20 minutes at a time.

    Find ways to relax such as meditating, doing yoga, deep breathing, listening to music etc. There's no downside to relaxation, and it can help ease pain. Some people experience pain relief through acupuncture treatments.
