My wife has had Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis since she was 6. She was crippled until her late 30s when she got onto Minomycin, an antibiotic used to treat acne.
It has made her much more flexible and for those sceptics, she has one of the leading Rheumatoligists in Australia prescribing it.
Two tabs morning and night...you go though a bad time for two weeks after starting then you are right.
Only thing is it is hard to get a doctor to give it a go. They look at you like are mad.
It works. Look elsewhere on the net and see what others say.
It's no cure but it's the next best thing...and all sufferes know, what have you got to lose...but the pain!
