Join me on my journey to conquer Rheumatoid Arthritis. I'll be sharing my experiences, treatments, and tips for managing the disease. Together, let's work to reduce the impact of this debilitating condition and make life better for everyone.
Living with arthritis can be a difficult and painful experience. For four months, I would wake up every morning with swollen hands because I slept on them. After a few visits to the doctor, I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis at the age of 21 and my life changed forever.
At 25, I received my first Total Knee Replacement, then a De Quervain Release surgery. Soon after that, I began to experience a range of symptoms that spread throughout my body. I honestly felt as if the pain was everywhere immediately after taking the medication. As the symptoms worsened, I started to need assistance with my daily activities. It was then that I started to look for ways to manage the pain and reduce its intensity so that I could live a more comfortable life.
I discovered various treatments such as physical therapy, Cryotherapy, Floating and chiropractic care. These treatments helped me manage my pain and gave me relief from it. Additionally, I also found out about different medications which could help in reducing the pain and providing better mobility for me. With these treatments combined with lifestyle changes such as eating healthy food and exercising regularly, I was able to improve my quality of life significantly.
Unfortunately, at the age of 31, I received my second Total Knee Replacement on the opposite knee. This was a difficult time in my life as I had to adjust to a new normal. As symptoms spread throughout my body, I began to need assistance with my daily activities and felt limited in what I could do. It was then that I realized how important it is to have people around you who can help you through these tough times and provide emotional support
