Hello, Hope I can keep this short... I dont do alot of this health stuff, but have been a hearer of the word for awhile.
Im an ex-smoker. Watched the father of my children die with
cancer last july and quit smoking aug 1st, after 30 years of habit. I also have some bad teeth so cut way back on soda.
About mid oct I started to experience some arthritic-like
symtoms. Id had this before but it would come and go.
This time they hung around. I finally went to a general practioner/family doctor. He doesnt think I have rheumatory Arthritis
[like my mom]. He thinks it is tendonitis. He also advised me to get my teeth taken care of, as its likely Im
getting alot of bacteria in my system through them. He had
some lab work done, but I wont know the results of that till
next month. Im wondering if these symtoms could be a result of my system trying to clean house. Ive noticed that sugar, like a bowl of ice cream, actually relieves some of the pain. Could this be
because its robbing oxygen and preventing the cleaning process..
Post more when lab work comes back. Thanks for any insight. Marj
