Reply to "Help for arthritis?"

She has rheumatoid arthritis. I don't know what the monthly injections were. Apparently, the shots were stopped because it (or something else she was taking) was affecting her liver (the amount of something was too high in her liver). The doctor is a certified rheumatologist, but I'd like to blow his head off right now because he still wants her to wait another week for the usual injection. Aspirin does not help. My father ended up taking her to the Emergency Room this afternoon and they gave her a cortisone shot in her back. She's feeling much better now, but we don't know if she'll make it to next week's appointment alright. Frown bang

Glucosamine, or Chondrotin may help

She took these when she was first diagnosed, but they don't work anymore. Thanks, though. Smile
