Treatment Ratings

    Not Improved
    NSAIDs - Anti Inflammatory drugs, Physical Therapy, Massage, Acupuncture, Heat, Swimming

I have tried all the ones I indicated and although it gave relief on nearly everyone, it was only temporary for a couple of hours. The pain is constant and if I do house work, lifting, or gardening (which I love) I will be in agony for days. Seems like permanent disability, as least that is what I have been told. They do not advise surgery because of the arthritis.
