Hello

I am a double board certified clinical doctor and will help you with this. Let me know at the end if you have more questions.

There are many medications.

You need to see a rheumatologist to tailor a medication to you.

Ibuprofen can help until you see the doctor.

However, you should not let this go.

It can cause bone destruction if not treated with a disease modifying drug as indicated, or other treatment that modifies the disease.

Talk to your GP immediately. If he/she is not treating you, this is not good.

OK, so you might have more questions or want to give me more information: Please use reply to expert if you have further questions. Also, please click a positive rating [hopefully excellent—that’s how we are paid, per rating]. If you forgot something, just use reply and come back. I am here

i am making an appointment with a doctor , i thought by paying £24 that you were going to give me something like some
homeapathic advice to take .
Expert:  DrRussMD replied 6 months ago.

OK

Let me explain.

We do not treat or diagnose. We answer questions.

You are asking for treatment.

Homeopathic treatment for rheumatoid arthritis requires up to 3 hours of face to face interview with a physical exam.

is this what you are trying to find?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
Thanks for your advice but i cant afford to pay any more money .
Expert:  DrRussMD replied 6 months ago.

I am not suggesting we do that here.

HEre is how you can start helping yourself

A nutrient dense diet: see the book, Eat to Live by Dr. Joel Furhman for exact instructions.

Add fresh ginger daily to cooking or take capsules.

Add turmeric.

Use boswellian herb but make sure your doctor is monitoring you.

A homeopathic remedy has to be selected as I have described above.

You have very good homeopaths in the UK. You would want a classical homeopath.

Let me know if you want some links.
