"Arthritis" is my problem too, although like you, I've long suspected that it had more to do with some other problem. The pain just didn't seem to come from the joint as much as from the swelling and irritation around the joint, so my doctors promptly diagnosed it as osteo arthritis.
Since Miracle-Mineral-Supplement , my swelling has DRAMATICALLY declined, and I'm almost back to normal-sized hands. I can actually snap my fingers again in both hands, and have been doing finger, wrist and arm exercises, for the first time in years. (too painful previously)
If you're getting swelling from taking the Miracle-Mineral-Supplement , I would view that as a hopeful sign that something is changing, and a war is being fought on your behalf. :)
If you can tolerate higher dosages, it might resolve faster.
