A Woman’s Personal Persepective on Rheumatoid Arthritis

December 16th, 2011

A recent post from the Huffington Post’s chronic pain blog presents Chaunte Smith’s personal experience with the condition and addresses methods that women can use to be proactive about RA treatment. Here is an  excerpt from the post: ” Smith, who comes out of a background in the pharmaceutical industry, intuited that something other than first time motherhood was at play. She said, “I could barely walk. I couldn’t pick up my newborn.” She connected with a rheumatologist, and in tandem they determined what her course of treatment would be. Smith knew that she wanted to have a second child, and her choice of medications was informed by that fact.”
