A little background info...Im 24 and was diagnosed about a year ago. I would have been sooner but I didnt have insurance to get checked out (stupid I know) but had been experiencing pain since about 21-22. Ive been pretty lucky so far with the progress but this week has been terrible. I got my first x-rays with visible damage to the joints in my hands and for the first time it actually effected my day to day activity - I couldnt hold the brush to blow dry my hair. I know this may sound minor to some of you out there that have progressed further but Im relativity young and this is all new to me and I don't have anyone to relate to near by. Any suggestions to get me through the tough days or and tricks you use to be able to do "normal" stuff like blowdry your hair?
