Does Rheumatoid Arthritis run in your family? It does in mine.


I found out what bone pain felt like when I separated my tibia plateau from my tibia, and fractured down. Since Rheumatoid Arthritis runs in my family (My father suffers from it.) I was told by my Orthopedic doctor that either Arthritis, or Rheumatoid Arthritis is in my future. There are days I feel like my body is attacking itself, and every joint hurts. But, also because my knee has an Open Reduction Fixature in it, along with Cadavers that bend to 90 degrees so I can still walk without assistance, I feel the bone on bone, and swelling. I'm only 31, the average female with Rheumatoid Arthritis has a history of it in their family, the age ranges also from 25 - 45 for developing the condition. My heart goes out to any one with bone pain. For me, I start to favor the side of my body that doesn't hurt as much, and balancing my weight like that every time I stand up is taking a toll on my spine, and other joints. I do believe a diet, and exercise is a must. I refuse to give up, there are way too many things to try to make life still livable. Every body is different, and because of that every possible way to make things more tolerable should be tried. Right now I am on a Fat Free diet, no caffeine, and no tea because I was just hospitalized for pancreatitis. I "flex" my knee's daily, and stretch when I wake up every morning or I get what I call "marsh mellow foot." Even if you are young, and you are experiencing bone pain, you should bring this up to your doctors. I also believe in taking vitamins. You may think you are eating enough nutrients, but if your body is attacking itself, those nutrients may not even make it where they are supposed to. Please take the time to read what LifeScript.com has to say about RA. It may help you, or someone you know that is suffering, and too hard headed to tell a doctor.
