Living with the swelling and stiffness of rheumatoid arthritis is a very difficult and painful thing to deal with on a day to day basis. This pain is caused by the inflammation of the joints which can occur throughout the body. Many people who suffer from arthritis find day to day tasks very difficult and end up losing their independence while relying on help from others.
The only people who can understand the difficulties related to arthritis are the people who have been diagnosed and live with it every day. The internet allows for people to share stories and provide their own detailed descriptions of how they manage with arthritis and the difficulties they face. This is a great way to bring together an international community that can seek comfort in an uncomfortable situation.
These are 30 of the top arthritis bloggers that I have found to be influential in sharing and teaching about arthritis.
