Rheumatoid Arthritis & Fibromyalgia
At the age of 25, NYS registered nurse, Tala Lewis, could have never imagined being diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis, and fibromyalgia. This new lifelong diagnosis altered her daily living as it was behind many of her chronic symptoms. Her diagnosis came after years of struggling with a myriad of symptoms including chronic migraines, daunting pains, lethargy, and overall fatigue.
Tala spent years advocating for herself, this meant visits with specialists and doctors, countless labs, titrations of prescription drug dosages and the emotional toils of dealing with a physically debilitating disease; but now Tala had an answer, a name for what had plagued her all these years, the disease that had already taken so much of her youthfulness.
