  • September 15, 2016 RheumChat - understanding rheumatic disease

Our second RDAM #RheumChat of September was co-hosted by the Lupus Foundation of America (@LupusOrg). The Lupus Foundation of America is the only national force devoted to solving the mystery of lupus, one of the world’s cruelest, most unpredictable, and devastating diseases, while giving caring support to those who suffer from its brutal impact.

The topic of the chat was understanding rheumatic disease. Here are a few of the questions that were covered. See the full recap below.
Q1. What are rheumatic diseases?
Q2. What are some common symptoms of rheumatic diseases?
Q3. How does your rheumatic disease affect your life?
Q4. How can rheumatologists help individuals with rheumatic diseases?
Q5. What are some tips for living well with a rheumatic disease?
Q6. What resources or organizations are available to help those recently diagnosed?
