    Default CPPD or Pseudo gout

    Hello All,
    I was recently diagnosed with this in my right knee after an injury there and really can't find too much on it anywhere. I am anxious to avoid a recurrence because the pain was something to remember in your nightmares. Does anyone have any knowledge of this?
    The full name of the disease is Calcium Pyrophosphate deposition disease. It is interesting because I went to Dr. Mercola's clinic in 2004 and his hair testing discovered a high rate of calcium coming out in my hair. I don't take calcium so I never really found out where this was coming from. Very grateful for any ideas on this. Thanks in advance.

    Since this was entirely new to me, I went first to Dr. Google and found this very complete discussion, which may or may not be helpful.

    And a similar source: https://my.clevelandclinic.org/healt...-or-pseudogout

    Sadly, this does not appear to be the kind of condition that can be treated with "alternative" approaches. You might begin with an anti-inflammatory diet (google) and NSAIDS like ibuprofen. Keep in mind that NSAIDs and anti-inflammatories are apt to raise your blood pressure, so that should be something to keep in mind. But clearly, you need to be referred to a specialist in the treatment of joints.

    You have my sympathy, Laura. My right knee took the full impact of a fall recently and it hasn't responded to the comfrey salve I've been applying. So many things about aging that no one tells you about, right? Best of luck in your search for treatment!

    Thanks Pegg- It seems that this may have been caused by dehydration as I was pretty immobile for a day or two before this happened and not really drinking enough. It is better now. I hope your knee gets better soon.
