: : Hi Duke.
: : I read about your miracle cure with acupuncture. It is very hard to believe. I'd like to know if you were diagnosed with some type of arthritis before you started your acupuncture treatment. Thank you for your help.
: ;Hi Pat. I went to a medica doctor,had blood test etc,found out that I had RA..Not taken any medication except acupunture and chinese herbs.
Hello to everyone with this problem- I am so glad that I have someone who can relate to my problems with arthritis. I have flat feet-it feels like I am walking on bones in my feet. The dr. wants to fuse the bones in the top of foot together. Has anyone had this done before. I am overweight which doesn't help the problem. I have both feet in soft brace type boots. It helps some but not all the time. I have sharp shooting pains up my foot. My feet swell and are painful. I have taken
all types of arthritis meds-I am taking vioxx 25mg
right now.Sometime I don't think it helps at all.
I went to the dr. last week and he gave me steriods which has really helped the pain. I know this isn't good. Does anyone have any information that would help me? My regular doctor has told me not to have surgery until last resort. Thanks for listening!!!! deb
