Pain Relief or Fluke

I've been on medication for arthritis for about 4.5 years now. A few weeks ago I went off drinking with a few buddies(something I rarely do), the funny thing is my arthritis never bothered me for about a week. Then it started up again a week later so I drank a pint of vodka one evening just to try it again. Well, that was 4 days ago and my arthritis pain is once again gone!! It is hard to believe but could moderate amounts of the right alcohol relieve arthritis pain for a week or more?

Much cheaper and more side benefits then taking my pills.

Hummmm, sounds like a risky cure to me. If I drank a pint of vodka I would be passed out and under the table in no time.  :)   Seriously, alcohol has never helped my RA over the last 25 years.
Good luck and Cheers!

RA = Rheumetoid Arthritis, you must have Osteoarthritis?
