RA featured in tonight's episode of Casualty and I must say, I was disappointed with the way it was portrayed. For those who didn't see it; a young man of 15 was dx'ed during the episode with RA on the basis of joint and eye symptoms. Twice, he commented that he "might end up in a wheelchair" and there were no other comments about what the disease is or how it acts. At the end, they told him not to worry after all because blood tests had shown it was a mild form! I know it's only a TV program but I thought they could have done a bit better and maybe done some research, even a quick google!
