Expert:  DR MED MD replied 6 years ago.
Is there pain in any other joint?

ES but not as much and it started in the hips your severalyears ago. My hips have been x-rayed and they don't show much except a little arthritis problem. In the other parts of my body there is a lot of stiffness which will go away if I don't eat all the things that are supposed to be good for you.
fruits, vegetables, green tea, peanut butter, all kinds of nuts. a doctor told me that my immune system was attacking me.
Expert:  DR MED MD replied 6 years ago.

When was the X-RAY done?

What is the dose of metformin ?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.

The x-rays were done several years ago. I had several a few years apart and they always came out the same way.

the Matt Foreman are 850 MG TAb.
Expert:  DR MED MD replied 6 years ago.
I am really sorry its blood..
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
I have had the normal blood tests that they give you an annual physical.

Could you name the blood tests that you recommend I definitely should have. Or anything else I should asked the doctor looked for.
Expert:  DR MED MD replied 6 years ago.
You are having severe arthritis.

You need regular pain killer i.e Celebrex

Blood investigation like RA factor and URIC acid level will help to rule out disease like rheumatoid arthritis.

You need another radiograph of pelvis to see the fresh changes

thanks

one more quick question. How come off I really watch what I eat I can feel so much better the next day we without any problems. And other days when I have not eaten anything which I know is going to cause a problem I'm stiff as a board.
Expert:  DR MED MD replied 6 years ago.
are you having any problem with digestion?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
there don't seem to be any problems with digestion directly. The only problems I have in there with bowel movements which have been mostly solved by eating beans twice a day and a high fiber cereal once a day. This was a doctor's suggestion.

The problem was I was switching back and forth from constipation to the opposite.
Expert:  DR MED MD replied 6 years ago.
ya he is right high fiber diet will solve your problem.
