7. There Are More Than 100 Types of Arthritis
That’s right, more than a hundred! What does that mean for you? That you shouldn’t accept one bad diagnosis or leave it at one unhelpful treatment. If your diagnosis seems off or your treatment isn’t working, there could be a very good reason for that. Seek a second opinion and new treatment, and keep fighting!
Knowing these facts doesn’t make you immune to arthritis, of course, but it can increase the chances that you’ll respond to it quickly and intelligently. Tell your doctor if you are suffering arthritis right away, as knowing your history can make them more able to help you deal with the problem with as few side effects and as little pain as possible.
