My mother does not have rheumatoid arthritis. She has been treated for that for over 30 years. Why it has gotten much worse & much more painful as they were treating her for the wrong type.
What type does she have? She cannot remember the name, so waiting for the details. They gave her an injection Monday. to help with the pain & ease the symptoms, but the damage is done & cannot be undone.
She also does not have osteoporosis.
We do know she has gout in her hands & not RA. I am not surprised on this as what I suggested she use to help with the pain would not work on RA, but it did on her hands.
