Have you tried Cannabis oil? My symptoms started a few years ago and two summers ago hit me really hard. So far I have been diagnosed with inflammatory arthritis. I am waiting to see a specialist to narrow down the final diagnosis which could take up to 2 years! Wonderful hey. When I got my first full blown flare up two summers ago they put me on anti inflammatories which did not work, prednisone which didn’t really do much, methotrexate which made me sick 6 days a week and made me worst, plaque… read more
