I have been on ACV for 3weeks (2tsp 3 times a day in 1,5 l water) and have found it has not benefited me with my arthritis. I have applied it on my ankle in 50/50 ACV and water solution and it relieved the pain but for 10-15min only!!! My arthritic pain has gone worse. Is this natural in the beginning of taking it? I was diagnosed with sero-negative arthritis 7 months ago and I am university student. I am finding it difficult dealing with this disease. Can anyone help me?
