I was talking to my aunt tonight (my dad's sister). I mentioned to her I missed my rheumatology appt on Monday due to the stomach flu. She said wait, a rheumatologist? What's wrong. So I explained everything that has been going on and a possible RA diagnosis. My aunt, my other two aunts (my dad's sisters) and two of my cousins have been diagnosed with RA! I was like WHAT? I had no idea. Also my mom has RA. HOLY COW. The one aunt I haven't seen in several years, she actually has some deformity from it.
