ABC News: Biggest Arthritis Myths

Hello Loves!

We know we have been badly behaved sick chicks, not posting on our blog in what seems like decades.  I have a cavalcade of ideas for future blog posts coming your way, so stay tuned.

In the meantime, have you seen the ABC News article today on the biggest arthritis myths?  Here is a summary of THEIR myths:

1.  It's only for the elderly
2.  Some veggies make it worse
3.  There is no help for the pain
4.  Cracking knuckles is a major cause
5.  Exercise = bad

Do you agree or disagree that all of these are myths?  I personally do notice a different if I OD on red pepper strips and cucumbers.  Moderation is key, as well as having open communication with your Rheumy.

Do you have any myths or urban legends to add to the list?  Hit us up in the comments with your thoughts!

  1. My favorite myth is that it runs in the family-- if one FEMALE has it they ALL have it. I have it and so does my mom but thank gawd, none of my 3 sisters has it.

    It's nice to see a major news network focus on the disease.

    Feel good!
