My maternal grandmother, now 93, has osteoarthritis, but no afflictions regarding any other illnesses. I have been treated over the years for fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis and rheumatoid vasculitis, mainly becuase three of the four clinical criteria were not present all at once, making diagnosis difficult.
I live in Cleveland,
Ohio not far from the Cleveland Clinic, but I had no luck there when I sought
treatment approximately ten years ago.
Presently I am fighting with social security for diability payments beuase of course I cannot work, am on many meds, and actually an grateful that as of yet, though there has been unbearble pain, I have a somewhat comparatively mild case of this disease.
