No experience myself but aspirating worked on my sisters wrists. Homeopathy... Acupuncture would be a better bet! Good luck

Homeopathy? I hope as a member of the scientific community you told them for shame (and reported them).

Good to hear a story of aspiration working as there is about zero confidence of it working from pretty much everyone I've talked to. Instead of homeopathy I took the approach of talking to my normal GP who has booked me in for aspiration 10 days before the race - fingers crossed! If that fails, Bruce has experience of hitting them with a book so at least if it comes back in the race we just need to locate a local library/church.

This is the same wise GP who told me he didn't think bisphosphonates (the current go to treatment for osteoporosis) should be widely prescribed as they causes atypical fractures - well, that is currently under debate, atypical fractures are so rare they can't get a decent controlled study on them and the best evidence is that bisohos prevent fx. I think he gets his info from the american headlines...

seriously, homeopathy? Give him a copy of Bad Medicine then report him to the GMC!
