Rheumatoid Arthritis, Swollen Knees, Baker’s Cyst
Beverly (from San Gabriel Valley) – This homemaker was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis in 1999. Her MD doctor gave her Vioxx. She then consulted a rheumatologist and underwent blood tests. She was advised to take Plaquenil, an anti-malarial drug but refused because of the ocular side effects. Her knee began to swell and she developed a Baker’s Cyst. She then went to an orthopedic surgeon, who ordered an MRI. She tried cortisone shots, Celebrex, Methotrexate, and herbal supplements for 6 months, but all to no avail. After one treatment with Dr. Tong, most of the pain on the right side of her body was much improved.
