Young Adults and RA - "But you don't look sick" August 25 2016

Young people everywhere have the same mentality that health issues are something that they won’t have to worry about for years to come. Many diseases can affect the young, and one of the most unexpected of those diseases is rheumatoid arthritis (RA). The truth is that 1.3 million Americans with rheumatoid arthritis are young adults from 18 to 40. 

Young Women are more likely than Young Men to develop RA

The Mayo Clinic reports that  1 in 400 to 1 in 500 women in their 20s and probably closer to 1 in 1,000 or less in men [in their 20s]. The peak age of onset is in the mid-50s. The disorder inflames and then destroys up the lining of their joints and silently ravages their eyes and scars their lungs. It can also result in damage to the heart. However many young people are in denial about their condition. 

"But you don't look sick"

An RA diagnosis at a young age can be difficult to swallow, resulting in a delay in pursuing treatment. You might think of your grandmother's gnarled hands and be afraid. You might go into denial or avoidance. You might think the pain isn't important or minimize your symptoms before they become acute. 

At Synodrin, we are passionate about helping to alleviate the effects of this chronic condition. We also hope to work with those afflicted with RA and raise awareness about RA in general. One of the things we hear RA patients, especially young people with Rheumatoid Arthritis, say so often is that people tell them, "You don't look sick." This leads to young people diagnosed with RA to feel unheard, and to feel as if their pain isn't important. 

The younger you are when diagnosed, the more at risk you are for damage to your body from the disease. Because RA causes joint pain, it can make it a lot more difficult to stay active, which can cause you to gain weight, and leave you at a higher risk for other diseases, like Diabetes or heart disease.  Treating your pain matters more than you know. 

At Synodrin, we want to help.
