I regulary take Turmeric and also drink golden milk. I couldn't say for certain if it really helps a lot but I do think my muscle pain is reduced and I feel stiffer if I miss it for a few days. My Rheumy was fine about me taking it and actually encourages suppliments.

I use almond milk and a bit of coconut oil. If nothing else it's a warm comforting drink to have at night time and helps me sleep. Let me know if you try it
I take Curcumin which is the extract from the Turmeric root with healing properties. I've noticed a vast improvement when I flare. It really takes the edge off. Obviously, this is my personal experience, everyone is different but I showed this product to my Doctor and he said that it was worth giving it a shot, It all plant-based with no fillers which is great. I do make golden milk too and put turmeric root in my cooking but it wasn't enough to help with the pain. Hope that helps.
