Can anyone help? I have been suffering for 5 years with arthritic symptoms of severe pain and swelling of many joints, was given diagnosis of having Rumatiod arthritis and have been getting steroid injections from hospital specialist...... every few months, I also have Hep-c and have been given a biopsy. Biopsy result was that I had no visual signs of damage to my liver at the moment, and was advised to return in 5yrs. Still suffering with the rumatic symptoms though and the specialists appear to be struggling to find out how to treat me and what for primerily. Have been using the treatment of sulfasalisine along with steroid injections and steroid infusions....however it appears hopeless to have impact on whatever it is that wrong with me....have tried lots of diets and holistic treatments to no avail.....would like to hear of others with similar symptoms and or treatments or places to visit for solutions.
