    When my husband injured his muscle he went to do arriosti and he said it was amazing. It was referred to him by his PCP and he was better after just a few sessions. He highly recommends it. Let me know how things go. Being injured is no fun.

    Great article Christie! I want to start at the gym this week and I had a question between split training and full body workout. Now I know, for a beginner, I should start by doing full body workout. There isnít a personal trainer at the gym so I will have to find someone to help me develop a good plan.

    I imagine this has healed but wanted to mention that I started doing two Silver Sneakers classes to vary from the Zumba I do four days a week... I find them very good as the teachers are trained to explain every muscle group and reason, you can work at your own pace, there is some gentle cardio etc. Yes it is aimed at the silver haired, lol, but at least her in Redwood City there are some badass women and guys doing it!

    My arm still hurts since before Christmas. Been to the doctor twice ($80 co pay each time) who said it will get better. Over 6 months and not better. Losing my faith in the medical system.

    Oh no! More and more I realize what an art diagnosis is. Have they said what it is?
    That's a high co-pay! I whine about my medicare co-pays being higher than our work insurance has- I switched to saver my boss a ton of money. My hospitalization this week was 285 a day - works would have been 100 a day- what do you pay for hospital stays? I fear the answer!
    Ot is wonderful you are so active in spite of the pain.

    I think my hospital co-pay is $150 a day. 3 years until Medicare, now it's cobra so quite pricy.

    Same here, I could have punched the rheumatologist I saw in February, such an incompetent disgrace!!

    I noticed that besides my PPI making me sick, each time my stomach is getting worth, I stop taking my omegas 3 (does increase my reflux) but then my arthritis gets worth in just a few days.

    If you don't take omegas yet, you could try that, it does help for real, that and turmeric, not sure which one works better I usually take both when my pain comes back, but it's a little hard for the stomach, better to take it before a meal.
