I had a hospital appointment today not related to my rheumatoid disease and during a conversation with the nurse I said its having rheumatoid too that complicates things and mentioned that a lot of people muddle it up with osteoarthritis. She said yes a lot of people discount osteoarthritis at least you can get treatment for rheumatoid. I couldn't believe my ears, I said yes but it doesn't just affect the joints and the treatments are not very nice and don't always work. I would have liked to say a lot more but thought what's the point she's a nurse she's not going to listen to me anyway I might as well save my breath x
