About Me: Male, 71, Haskell, TX, member since Nov 2012
Regarding my health I have severe osteo arthritis in my hands. My joints in my hands have been huge for years but didn't hurt...now they have started hurting. I've avoided ibuprofens until recently but they seem to help.
I've also got permanent SHINGLES. It's very nasty but as I've had them now for 12 yrs I may be able to help someone with less experience. For instance, they react well to heat and very poorly to cold.
