She wouldn't treat me. It took the nurses fighting her to even have her fill my heart medication. She wouldn't listen to a word I had to say and then said she will tey to get my money back and I never saw her after that.
I wasn't even asking for more than 10 narcotic pills and a script for flexoril. That nurses were arguing in front of me.
This has been a really shitty day. After I left work, all hell broke loose.
Kris I know I've prolly said this to you a hundred times but really see a naturopath. They may find out that your flare ups can be controlled through diet (food allergies and sensitivities are a HUGE contributor to Auto Immune disorders like RA) believe it or not.
Medications only do so much and make us dependant on them to have quality of life and that really doesn't need to be the only way to treat things. Also if you can find one.. see a live blood analyst. The amount of things you can learn about your health just from a blood screening is incredible.
Hello. my deepest sympathies to Alsgalpal, and all members who are in pain. Although my situation doesn't compare with others, I will offer my personal experiences - you can take them or leave them. I've seen a naturopath over the last two years. Through a blood test he suggested, I learned I am sensitive to eggs, dairy, pineapples, amongst other items. If I avoid those foods, I do not suffer inflammation and I feel more mobile. Also, I had my blood analysed and I am O negative, meaning gluten intolerant. Avoiding gluten has made my life better. So, IMO a naturopath and blood analysis are a couple of good suggestions from Ya_Big_Tree.
Also, I've had success with an Osteopath. This is way better than a chiropractor IMO. He spends 30 - 45 minutes and treats the whole body, moving things into place. He's worked with accident victims who have achieved relieve. A good Osteopath will keep improving things with the ultimate goal of not seeing you any more.
Again, these are simply some ideas to ponder. I am not judging anyone - I wish you and every member all the best at whatever direction you take to feel better.
