hey, I started with my symptoms a year ago and finally last friday got diagnosed with inflammatory arthritis and put on medication. I'm struggling because whenever I research about inflammatory arthritis it always brings up rheumatoid arthritis however my understanding is that they are different? I kind of feel like sometimes it makes my arthritis feel less significant.

I am really happy to have access to this page, I am only 20 and have felt loneliness through all of this to an extent I didn't know was possible so thank you for having me here :)
