For Some College Students, Remote Learning Is a Game Changer

As colleges across the nation created remote learning opportunities in response to COVID-19, people with disabilities have seen accommodations made that they’ve been asking for even years before the pandemic.

These remote learning accommodations can make all the difference in the lives of people who are immunocompromised or experience chronic pain. https://buff.ly/3AVXEIq

Last year, online classes helped many students with disabilities pursue their education. They want the option to continue.

The Power of Mentorship in the Cultivation of Advanced Practice Providers - The Rheumatologist

“The care of patients suffering from rheumatic diseases requires knowledge, but knowledge has little to offer if it does not come from a person who is compassionate, creative, patient and humble.” - Sara Kellahan, MSN, APRN, AGPCNP-C

Mentorship is an incredibly powerful resource for career development and growth of rheumatology. Sara Kellahan recently shared her experience with the Mentored Nurse Practitioner/Physician Assistant award. https://buff.ly/3s6eD7u

“The task of the modern educator is not to cut down jungles but to irrigate deserts,” said mid-20th century scholar and writer C.S. Lewis. Although he was speaking to the importance of the holistic education of students, the same idea rings true for a 21st century nurse practitioner (NP) new to ...

The Case of Rheumatoid Arthritis “Key opinion leaders — a critical perspective” Published in Nature Reviews Rheumatology (November 30, 2020) at https://www.nature.com/articles/s41584-020-00539-1 Abstract “Enormous progress has been made in the field of rheumatology in the past several decades, historically led by publicly funded academic innovators but in more recent times with much greater involvement of the pharmaceutical industry. This shift in resources has created a complex new model for reinvestment in the medical community in which the vast majority of private funds are redirected towards influencing the prescription behaviour of practitioners through ‘key opinion leaders’, with the main purpose of enhancing and perpetuating profit rather than innovation and critical thinking, and often at the expense of partnerships with scientists (that is, basic and translational researchers) and academic collaborations. This new episteme brings multiple opportunities to rethink approaches to sustaining long-term critical research in the field, ultimately maximizing the return on investment: scientific knowledge for the benefit of patients and society. Central to such strategies should be the rebalancing of academia–industry partnerships towards academic research and the involvement of ‘innovation and knowledge leaders’, rather than mostly key opinion leaders.” While this distortion in the objective of medicine is happening, there is no attention and scientific discussion to real medical advances about the cause and cure, for example, of “Rheumatoid Arthritis” That is the case of our recent postulation through the article: “Autonomic Dysfunction and Increased Lactate Production with Accumulation in the Body: The Key Factors for the Development of Rheumatoid Arthritis.” This article was published in Positive Health Online, Issue 252 - February 2019 at http://www.positivehealth.com/article/arthritis/autonomic-dysfunction-and-increased-lactate-production-with-accumulation-in-the-body-the-key-factors Abstract It tells about: 1) The history of discovery of the autonomic dysfunction as the precursor of Rheumatoid Arthritis. 2) The forgotten theory of the accumulation of lactic acid as the cause of arthritis and rheumatism, and its renaissance in the case of RA. 3) A new hypothesis for the cause of RA that links autonomic dysfunction to the development of increased lactic acid production with its accumulation in the body. 4) The risk factors for RA based in this new hypothesis, covering almost all of those already know and in use. 5) An old and inexpensive drug comply with the new perspectives above mentioned, representing an adequate and potential solution for prevention and treatment of RA.

Hi everyone, I'm reaching out on behalf of a friend who is severely suffering and bed ridden. She has reached out to her local GP who referred her to a Rheumatologist but he is on annual leave for three weeks. Her pain is becoming unbearable and I can see her going into a downward spiral. Please please can someone advise or help? From my understanding no one has diagnosed her properly yet and she's been prescribed medications. This isn't her first time experiencing this. Her symptoms: Achy and heavy legs, sometimes throbbing Joint pain in knees elbow wrists (no swelling) sometimes throbbing Pain flares up where i can't move and then it calms down Cant walk normally - slow Joint pain can be sharp pains or constant dull pain Fatigue (on and off) This time she's also had the following but not really had these before: No appetite Nausea Headaches (on and off) Swelling, throbbing, hot and itchy, rash and redness of toes and fingers (only flares at night now) Medications she is taking: Steriods and Sulfasalazine ESR blood test inflammation marker normal Ultrasound of joints normal Waiting on 'immune blood test' results Previous history Ulcerative colitis in remmission for 10+ years Raynauds Mild inflammation right side found in colonoscopy in Sept 2020 which has cleared now
Can someone PLEASE verify if this statement is true: Fibromyalgia Headache Symptoms These headaches often present with the following symptoms: Sharp, pulsing pain. Pain localized to one side of the head or penetrating the eye.
Hi I have Fibromyalgia and Axial spondyloarthritis and have been taking pictures and videos of the result of fluctuating chronic illness. I hope this can help somebody see the light and also shows how chronic illness can be invisible on days somebody 'looks fine'.
