I'm sorry that the glutamine wasn't helpful for you. Did you try just the usual dosage? The high dose & quality was what worked for me. As far as physical therapy: I was in a car accident about 6 months ago & had physical therapy at that time. I was able to get her to work on my hips, etc. She didn't think it would help, & it didn't but atleast she tried it, & I didn't have to pay. I hope the doctor finds something that will help with your new problem.
