    Hello everyone:
    I did a search above for 'gold shots'. They were very popular for people with pain about 35 years ago. I was wondering if anyone else remembers this and was it just a fad or really worked.

    Hi Nyro,
    My brother took gold shots about 30 years ago for a severe case of Rheumatoid Arthritis. They were effective for him but there are much better treatments now. From what I know, they are not commonly used now.

    Thank you for the info. It sounds like thirty years ago or so it might have been worth it, but today it has faded to the background. Thank you for filling me in. I was almost going to ask my doc for them in a few weeks, but he will not even give me trigger point injections. His answer: I'd have to give them to you from head to toe.

    I am going to try for the right shoulder this time.It can not hurt to ask.

    Hugs,
