There is no way of knowing for sure, did your doctor mention cartilage erosion?

Why are you taking Cipro on a daily basis.

you still have not told me what kind of arthritis i have sir

It may be either rheumatoid arthritis or just a degenerating joint without having to be arthritis. If you have no other joint problems it may just be degenerative joint disease, which is a form of arthritis. Please review the website I've attached for further information.

    I feel better already! Thank you.

    ElanorTracy, CA

    Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

    JulieLockesburg, AR

    You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

    John and StefanieTucson, AZ

    I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
