Too many times, I have observed in my practice many patients in pain who present me with a bag of arthritis pills that have not been working. In Fact, the pills were negatively working in the wrong place. Often, the patients would have stomach pain due to the arthritis medication. It is known that many of the medications used for arthritic pain can cause serious ulcers of the stomach resulting in bleeding.
Camille Church of Merrillville traveled 676 miles to Washington, D.C. this month to ask Congress to support people with arthritis through policies that will ensure more research, better treatments and greater access to care.
