Why Do Doctors Fob Us Off Its Just Arthritis And Gets Worse With Age

Why Do Doctors Fob Us Off Its Just Arthritis And Gets Worse With Age

My Doctor is very nice but just gives exercise papers to stretch the body .
It seems there only advice at the moment is to give papers out because of Covid can't go to appointments or physio

I got the same treatment until I went to an Orthopedic Dr. who diagnosed AS! I also have ADD, Fibromyalgia w/a lot of fog… and arthritis in several areas. (And a few other issues including COPD). Exercising is very difficult but I am active most days. All previous docs tossed it all into the Fibro basket & did nothing! I’m so glad I found this dr. Next visit will be for a permanent Nerve Block. I’m hoping it helps!! He also prescribed Meloxicam & Cyclobenzaprine which are helping some. Hope this info helps…🤗

I was prescribed meloxican
But did nothing for me
I now have a new Doctor WHO SENT me for a camera look into my stomach
I can't take any arthritic drugs as they will cause ulcers
