Q: How do you control osteoarthritis pain when you have gone through all the OTC meds and NSAIDs?

Have taken all OTC and NSAIDs, all do not work for me now. I even have it in my spine. Have tried parafen baths for the hands. MD does not know what to do. Seen a rheumatologist, no solutions except maybe a pain clinic. What can they do for this type of pain?

Have you heard of the new stem cell therapy, using your own stem cells to heal?

Can you give more information on this? I have not heard of this before. Is there a place on the web I could go to for more information and how it works and how well?  Thanks

please go the the clinic and be seen by the physician there who is board certified in anesthesia and pain management.  Sounds to me like you are a candidate for prescription analgesics and long-acting drugs.
