Palindromic Rheumatism

New research aims to shed much-needed new light on the mysterious condition that is palindromic rheumatism. Jane Tadman reports. Like many types of arthritis, palindromic rheumatism can strike without warning, causing extreme pain in one or several joints. But what makes it different to most other types of arthritis is that it then disappears as mysteriously as it came, although these attacks, or ‘flares’, can last days or weeks.It’s this very unpredictability, along with the intense pain, extreme fatigue and a general lack of awareness or understanding of the condition, that makes the lives of people with palindromic rheumatism so difficult.
