HI
Thank for asking to HCM
I really appreciate concern if this is Rheumatoid arthritis then medicine is the only option you have and any procedure is there that could repair the joint cartilage, some time steroid gives good symptomatic result if you have not tried this, then you can discus this with your doctor, hope this information helps you have nice day.
