Living With “Rheumatoid Arthritis” is pure hell!! #FindACure
Arthritis affects 52.5 million US adults, more than 1 of 5. It is a leading cause of disability in the United States and one of the most common chronic conditions in the nation. Arthritis is a common cause of chronic pain.
I was first diagnosed with Child Rheumatism “Arthritis”also called Juvenile Arthritis “In the legs” when I was 9 years old I remembered this just like it was yesterday my doctor treated me for 6 months then my Arthritis went away just like it came.
After 30 something years go by the Arthritis came back with a vengeance I now have it in my hands, fingers, wrist, knees, arms, elbows, neck, ankles and jaw I had symptoms first for about 5 months before the arthritis really hit. It was really hard trying to find the right medication for my RA. I went to an Acupuncture doctor for my allergies and that really helped me, how ever the acupuncture didn’t help with my RA so I started treating my RA with herbal remedies and eating more healthy along with juicing.
Having Rheumatoid Arthritis is a daily struggle you have good days and you have bad days, it also depends on what you eat if I eat the wrong food such as white rice or tomatoes even lots of cheese and so on, I’ll have flare ups and when that happens I can barley walk use my arms or hands. So I have to make sure I eat right more fish and veggies and juicing, my hand are trying to deform I’m always trying to bend them straight my knees hurt really bad the right one more than the left I limp at times. I’m a martial artist and I love kickboxing and running I’m unable to do that right now😦 I have to do every thing much slower “I Want My Life Back”
This is why I haven’t blogging much because I’m in pain😦 after the surgeries hopefully I be like brand new and I’ll start back blogging or Vlogging..
Rheumatoid Arthritis has really changed my life everyday it’s a struggle I hope they find a cure soon.
