For the past ten years I have been dealing with inflammatory issues related to my diagnosis of Rheumatoid Arthritis.
ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
I have been on several medications for this and none seem to alleviate or even decrease symptoms for any duration of time. My Rheumatoid Specialists have often tried to discredit my findings and correlate them to my diagnosis, but they never seem to get the appropriate treatment plan in place. I suffer severely and still continue to work as a manual laborer. I have had times where bruises show up out of nowhere and they are not related to any type of trauma sustained in these areas. I am at times often too fatigued to partake in family gatherings and events due to this. I have two amazing handsome grandsons who I can not even play for a short time at home. The sun is at times beneficial and because I am usually cold. I feel as though I am not taken seriously due to my ethnicity and cultural stereo type associated with my background. I have had numerous lab tests and x-rays done. Each time they are not certain about the results and yet insist on placing me on hard medications that are literally destroying my intestinal tract/ GI issues.
