Today was the 7th anniversary of me and my husband's first date. It would have gone really well, except for my arthritis. I've been in pain all day. Nothing seems to touch it. I've asked my doctor for help, and all I got was "Lose weight". Has anyone else been dismissed when they bring things like this up at the doctor's? What did you do?
