    Dear Dr Sharma,

    I am 76 (but 45 in my head & my heart). My chiropractor has found some arthritis in my lower spine (ergo, arthritis is present in my body) but that location doesn’t bother me.

    My complaint is that for at least 5 yrs I have had pain off and on in my left thumb & now in my right and in both the pain is nowhere near the nail; rather, it is deep … closer to where the thumb joins the hand. I am thinking rhus tox might help but do not know what strength or how often. Thank you for your time.

    • I have received encouragement to use Rhus Tox 10m for my upper right arm injury which occurred about 2 months ago. I had made quite a lot of progress in improved range of motion and diminished pain, but now the range of motion seems to be more inhibited again. I am familiar with lower potency dosing, but I would very much appreciate your guidance on how often to use the 10m potency. Thank you!
