I have moderate arthritis in both my hands. Years ago when seeing an ortho doc for something else we briefly discussed one hand. He was telling me about a very involved surgery.
Should I see a Rhumatologist to determine which arthritis I have? I've been seeing those commercials that say Rhumatoid could damage your joints over time. What say you? I can just see the future now, no use of my hands. Why did I inherit these bad joints. I have no desire to take more medicine unless I'm in dire straights. Did I spell Rhumatoid correctly?
