1) Am I going to be crippled?

When treated early and in the right manner it is almost impossible this will happen

2) Is there a cure?

Just like high blood pressure or diabetes many forms of arthritis are chronic diseases. There is no cure but with the right treatments the symptoms are controlled and damage prevented. Some forms of arthritis require joint replacement surgery.

3) Do I have to take medications all my life?

This is variable. Some forms of arthritis may require life long treatment.

This is one of a set of articles by Dr. Humeira Badsha, for patient awareness.
