Symptoms and Management
Access Health travels to New York City to meet with rheumatologist, Dr. Grace Wright to better understand rheumatoid arthritis.
Rheumatoid arthritis affects 1.3 million adults in the U.S. Patients with RA may experience pain, aches, morning stiffness, tenderness, and swelling affecting more than one joint in the body. It’s painful and exhausting to have, and it can cause depression and isolation for patients.
RA can cause progressive joint damage and may lead to other health problems as well, especially if left untreated or not treated well enough.
It’s important to not have patients lose hope. There are many options available to manage RA. If you are having joint pain – see your primary care provider and ask for a referral to a rheumatologist for evaluation and diagnosis.
