Arthritis can be extremely frustrating. Many patients find it frustrating going from doctor to doctor but never getting any real answers. Just being told to take pain killers or that ‘it’s just old age’ Some people give up, thinking ‘nothing can be done’, and ‘I just need to learn to live with it’.
And that’s sad. Because often times something can be done, more than just taking pain killers every day. But it starts with an accurate diagnosis. What arthritis do you actually have? And what joints exactly? Very often we find that relief is available once we know the answers to these questions.
