Sorry to hear that your medication seems not working well.
I think give acupuncture a try. especially with moxa, it helps stop pain very well.
Hope you find someone near you soon
Find a licensed Acupuncturist in your area and schedule an appointment. Good luck!
Acupuncture works by decreasing inflammation and increasing blood flow to the areas. While there is no cure for arthritis, acupuncture and Chinese herbal therapies can dramatically reduce the severity of your symptoms and slow the progression. In acute cases, the results are often more remarkable than in chronic cases.
Wishing you good health,

"Cure" is a strong word and even western doctors are weary of using the term. There are treatments that help arthritic pain and I have treated many patients coming in complaining of arthritis but don't complain about it anymore.
In general acupuncture deals very well with arthritis as long as you follow your acupuncturist recomendations. (I am not talking about MD's who took 300hour courses of acupuncture rather a doctor who studied 4 year of sole traditional Chinese medicine with 1000+ hours of residency).
