Rheumatoid arthritis

Submitted By: Lori

Hello.  I am a 45 year old woman and was recently diagnosed with RA.  I also have neuropathy in my right foot with associated ligament damage (PT said it was extremely loose), numbness, foot drop, and my ankle rolls out.  I’m being treated by a rheumatologist and am taking metho, folic acid, and prednisone (7.5 mg/day and am trying to step down).  I have 2 main questions – what is your experience with the success of acupuncture helping RA (pain, joint/tissue damage, vasculitis, neuropathy, etc.), and is acupuncture the best method for these issues or do you suggest a combination, such as acupuncture and massage, etc.? 

Thank you!
