just what i know from advil commericals. Sorry
My mother a"h had it. She died 16 years ago at age 65, but RA is not a life-threatening disease (although apparently people with RA do have lower life expectancies). Obviously I'm not up on the latest treatments but I can tell you how she coped with it. Email me if you like.
I have Psoriatic Arthritis, another wonderful form of Rheumatism. Its just like Rheumatoid Arthritis but with the added bonus of Psoriasis. I was diagnosed about six years ago and I'm incredibly knowledgeable about the disease and treatments. Feel free to email me.
i think that's what my grandmother has and she's had arthritis for years.
Occupational therapists frequently work with people with RA. Any specific help you need?
i had juvenile rheumetoid arthritis in my knee...hurt like heck...
aishelWell, if someone has inflammation, or signs of it, is it for sure that they will develop it?
Hyrax, inflammation by itself doesn't necessarily mean that there is arthritis. There can be many underlying causes. Did anything happen to the hand recently? Has it been in one position for a long time?
I have a friend who has JRA, she 's on all sorts of medications and chemo and stuff.
Some say to reduce animal protein. I know of people who've had a reduction in pain/swelling by being vegetarian.
