Looks like I am going to need to get a shot of Cortisone in my left hand now too. Already had one in my right hand and was sick for 3 weeks, on the verge of vomiting everyday because there is a small amount of gluten in the Cortisone shot.
It's either that or keep having miserable days of dropping things at work. Important embarassing things like people's drinks (water,milk,juice)... Weakness is increasing. Strength is decreasing. Pain is increasing. Even carrying a food tray feels like I'm going to drop it. Grabbing my water cup is even difficult. Twisting the lid off to refill it is just plain embarassing at times. Who the heck can't twist off a plastic lid with a straw in it at 48 years old!!!
Totally accepting any natural remedy advice =)
