suffers from rheumatoid arthritis
, a serious autoimmune disease that attacks the joints and other body parts. RA is characterized by periods of disease flares and remissions (patients may experience long periods without symptoms).
Marci had a horrific appointment
with a new rheumatologist last week, because she wasn't having a bad flare up during the visit!
What about your first visit to a new rheumatologist? Can you relate?
