Treatment Ratings

    Improved
    Cortisone Injection, Chiropractor, Gabapentin
    Not Improved
    Ice, Glucosamine and Chondroitin Sulfate, Supplements,

I had to leave a job that I really enjoyed for 30 years, due to rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis pain. It got so bad I could barely walk. Being at home has helped but I gained weight which isn't good and the pain is still there when I start to do things.
