Hi all,

I am new here and have tried various treatments, from medicines for depression and pain to accupuncture, but honestly nothing gives me long lasting relief.

Accupuncture feels so good in the moment and sometimes I feel better for the remainder of the day, but the next day I wake up and my elbows, shoulders and nerves are like crap again. I do not know what else to do.

I take fish oil, joint pain medicine, etc. but nothing seems to work. Does anyone have any recommendations on what has worked for you?

Yes. I have recently started this medication, but I have not noticed any difference yet. The doctor said it can take 6 - 8 weeks to really get in the system and notice the benefits. I am glad you have received benefits from it.
