Thank you Mjg1160! I think diet will make a difference, thank you for the recommendation. Already I have him eating all organic. He does have a reaction to some bread products (he breaks out in hives) and milk products. I read the right diet can help with inflammation. Hopefully I can get him to agree.
Colleen, once we get the blood work back we will know more. I want my husband tested for allergies. Then I plan on asking his primary doctor if he has any experience with this?I will ask if this can be an infection in the area ( I read that is sometimes the case)? I plan on asking if a biopsy is recommended (I would feel better if it was biopsied)? I plan on asking if he has a colleague who is a rheumatologist that has knowledge or specializes in this? I plan on asking the rheumatologist if there is a holistic approach to this, before taking steroids since he is experiencing no pain? Will tumeric help rather then a steroid? Also is this a progressive disease that leads to major problems later, or is it a disease that is in and out of remission?
