Long Ago I Recieved A Wrong Diagnosis

Diagnosed with RA at 17. Changed to "psoriatic arthritis" at 25.

Had X-ray bombardment at 18. Could have caused leukemia, but didn't.

It helped the lower spine. I'm 76 now and only allowed Tylenol and an occasional Aleve.

I was actually on Butazolidin for years. It worked but was potentially fatal.

It's long gone from the market.

Just turned down Methotexrate. I didn't like the side effects.

I liberally use CBD (no thc). It works and helps my sleep.
