Gold crowns and rheumatoid arthritis
Are you aware of any relationship between gold crowns and rheumatoid arthritis? I had a gold crown placed and within a couple of months started suffering from RA. I have heard of others with similiar stories but they had not made this connection. Please advice. Thanks.
No, actually colloidal gold used to used as a remedy for arthritis.
