I would love to connect with anyone else who has this condition! I have yet to meet another sufferer. EO mimics RA but is not an autoimmune disorder.
Thank you to the group for being here to support one another! Sharing has helped me so much.
How did they find out you have this?
For other members to understand what erosive osteoarthritis is, here is what I found in research.EOA is a progressive disease affecting the interphalangeal joints of the hand. It is also known as an inflammatory form of osteoarthritis. Pain, swelling, redness, warmth and limited function of the hand joints are commonly found in most patients with or without Heberden or Bouchard's nodes.
Very Interesting. I have the nodes, pain, swelling, redness but also very crooked fingers. Thank you and we hope to hear from you soon.
Yes! I was diagnosed about a year ago. My DIP joints in both hands are affected and it's very painful and starting to be debilitating. I also have some deformity which came on very quickly. I'm taking 800 mg of chondroitin daily and using Votaren gel and CBD cream, but the pain and swelling are there. Typing really hurts my fingers! Anyone else with these symptoms? I am considering fusion surgery if it gets any worse.
