I'm 34 years of age. I know that I've got early onset rheumatoid and osteoarthritis but doctors don't bother to help me. They put me on gabapentin which is a poisonous drug and tell me that because it doesn't show my pathology yet, because I'm too young, I have to wait. I have to wait and be in so much pain every day to the point it feels like my blood hurts at the moment. All I've got to them is fibromyalgia, which I believe they will find is connected to autoimmune conditions. Don't listen to every doctor.
