Treatments for my joint discomfort will consist of chiropractic, physiotherapy, and injections in my left and right knee and lower back. The injections were not a corticosteroid but a natural healing substance. I will be having treatments until mid Feb. I was also given a back brace and knee brace to wear 2 hrs each day and an electric stimulation kit for my knee to be used 30 min each day. Will keep everybody posted!
Nov 7th is my appt with my cardiologist to review my test results.

I did not get the flu vaccine! Never have. Rolling the dice? Lucky? Maybe! I eat well, take vitamins, take an aspirin a day, exercise and most important-I am a prolific hand washer! The very last exercise I do at the gym is washing my hands with soap and hot water! I can't remember the last time I had the flu or a bad cold. Speak to your doctor! If your 60, I am 65 they will probably recommend the vaccine.

I had an appt today with a joint and spine center to help me deal with my discomfort. X-Rays were taken of my knee, thumb, wrist, lower back, elbow, and shoulder. Next Thursday I meet with DO's, DC's and PA's to determine my next course of action.
