At first I noticed the stiffness in my fingers and feet. The swelling and pain increased to include my wrists and elbows. Driving became impossible and walking was becoming increasingly more difficult.

Blood tests helped my doctor confirm that I had Rheumatoid Arthritis. I was given oral medication and told it would take 3 to 6 months for the medicine to reach its full effect. I could then expect to begin feeling relief from my symptoms.

As a respiratory therapist being familiar with Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, my sister suggested that I try HBOT. It was truly like a miracle. The swelling and pain subsided. I could drive again and walk normally. Down to only one old pair of stretched out shoes, I could again wear all of my other shoes.

I am completely convinced that HBOT helped alleviate my symptoms as my therapy took place only three weeks into the start of my oral medication.
