: I have a very dear friend that is suicidal due to pain she suffers from arthritis. She has no insurance and doctors are refusing to see her. She lives in central LA and has been to the Charity Hospital but they are telling her there is a waiting list of two years before she can see a rheumatology specialist. Does anyone know of a doctor who will see her. She also has heart problems related to her arthritis.
: Please someone help me help her. I don't want to lose her and it is very hard to talk to her when she is crying and in so much pain. Any suggestion or knowledge of any doctor who will see her and help her.
: Thank You
: PS Her name is Cindy
:I have RA and have found that the foods I consume habr a great effect on it. My mental attitude, exercise, and rest do too. I take lots of vitamins, aspirin, glucosamine and chondroitin, MSM, and Enchinacia. I hardly know I have it anymore. I pray the RA stays away. If you read up on the subject, you can learn alot of self-help steps and they really do help.
