According to a new study, arthritis-related disabilities may begin before the person even receives a diagnosis of arthritis. This finding makes it even more imperative that you get joint pain and other symptoms checked out by a doctor as soon as they appear.

According to the results of a new study published in Mayo Clinic Proceedings, functional disabilities or disabling symptoms like difficulty in dressing, walking, and performing routine activities in some persons actually begins one to two years before the actual diagnosis of arthritis. The study also revealed that a functional disability for a person with arthritis can actually continue well after the person receives a diagnosis and begins treatment. This points to the need for a speedy diagnosis of arthritis.

If you have been experiencing any of the following symptoms of arthritis, consult a medical practitioner immediately.

  • Pain in the joints
  • Stiffness in the joints
  • Swelling
  • Redness
  • Difficulty in moving the joint or raising arms

If you have a family history of arthritis, your risk of arthritis may be a little higher, so do not ignore symptoms. If you have injured a joint earlier, the joint may be at a higher risk of arthritis.

If you suffer from arthritis, contact this law firm to discuss your legal right to file a claim for disability benefits.
