What Happens If You Don’t Treat Your Arthritis?

What Happens If You Don’t Treat Your Arthritis?

What could happen if I (23 year old) don’t do anything about my arthritis and just fight through the pain? Will I get joint damage or just eventually go into remission?

address the issue now, it will just get worse and the longer you wait to treat the more damage you will have.

i got joint damage. the pain is a signal to do something about it. don't ignore it or try to tough it out, listen to your body and care for what ails it, promptly.
