I have knee arthitis and tendonitis in both of my knees…would medical marijuana help the pain go away?
General Arthritis Q & A
I am a 30 old female with Primary Sjogren’s. (I currently do not take any meds for treatment.) I will be taking a trip to Southern India at the end of Dec. (I will be in a city and will not be in the country side at all.) My Primary Doctor recommends getting Hep. A, Typhoid, Tetinus, and Malaria vaccines before I go. I understand that the function of a vaccine is to initiate antibodies to attack the antigens thus causing recognition and subsequent resistance to these viruses and bacteria. My fear is that with an increase in antibody production this will exasterbate my current syndrome and cause further damage to my own body. I consulted my rheumatologist and he didn’t really have an answer for me. He told me to get them anyway. So, should I get the vaccines and potentially be protected from contracting these deseases? Or would it be safer/healthier to not to get them and take the chance of possibly coming into contact with one or more of them and getting sick? What’s worst? Do you have any advice or sugestions?
My mother has real bad arthritis in her legs, are you able to recommend a real good specialist in the area where we live? We reside in Anaheim California?
Is there a difference between men’s and womens’ type of arthritis?
My Dr uses fluoroscopy when doing knee injections, he billed me for 32 units of fluoro. How much radiation am I being esposed to? Where can I find out more information on this procedure?
