When I first became ill I also developed rheumatism in both my hands almost overnight. Rheumatism is caused by inflammation. Dizziness can also be the result of an inflammation of the inner ear.
I will monitor any progress and report back. I am one of the 30% of people who do not respond to antidepressants. Wouldn't it be amazing if something as simple and as cheap as ibuprofen could make a difference?
