Hot off the press! I, (Marie) had a call yesterday asking me to speak again on BBC Radio WM , my local radio station on Friday 11th November, with a Consultant Rheumatologist, to help promote The ‘ S ‘ FACTOR CAMPAIGN;
- Stiffness; Early morning joint stiffness lasting more than 30 minutes,
- Swelling; Persitent swelling of one joint or more, especially hand joints
- Squeezing; Squeezing the joint is painful in Inflammatory Arthritis
This important campaign was developed by the Rheumatology Futures Project Group, a coalition of patient and professional organisations representing the entire rheumatology community, and is being launched on Thursday 10th November in the U.K with the help of a celebrity doctor, Dr Hilary Jones, to highlight the symptoms of inflammatory arthritis,such as Rheumatoid, and to raise public awareness. The message to the general public is ;
If you have any symptoms highlighted in the poster which might possibly relate to either rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis or ankylosing spondylitis, which are the three most common forms of inflammatory arthritis, then seek help from your GP, don’t delay’ I will update you on the outcome!
