I have severe Rheumatoid Arthritis, who's is very active now. I also have Lupus, Raynauds, spinal stenosis( very severe), and have lost 50 lbs. Since end of Jat MRI's, tons of blood work, CT scan and we are no closer to answer. I also need a left foot fusion because I am bone on bone where foot meets beginning of ankle. I am feeling more functional since getting the foot cortisone a day hopefully the same training will help the pain

In my lower back If anyone knows of a good pain specialist in the Bethesda area by Democracy BLVD please forward to me. Thanks Annie
