Dealing with difficult patients
Any of you have any luck successfully managing a patient who argues with you that their lab results are abnormal, demanding tests that aren't indicated? I have done more of a work up than most would have done at this point and I do not think more testing is warranted. Example platelets of 180 they state is "lower end of normal, and is therefore abnormal," "a basophil percentage of 0.3% is low" and wanting rheumatoid arthritis work up with only symptom being dyspepsia. Explaining that... Dealing with difficult patients (Source: Student Doctor Network)

Advice For Dentistry With Arthritis
Hello everyone, I was fortunate enough to be accepted into dental school this upcoming summer. However, my senior year of high school I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis and placed on intense medications. My rheumatologist says that my arthritis is on a mild scale and the medication makes me feel like I don't even have arthritis (except for a few occasional flare ups). I was curious if anyone has any advice going into dentistry with arthritis or if they know anyone with a similar... Advice For Dentistry With Arthritis (Source: Student Doctor Network)

Rheum: Starting prednisone on suspected conditions as initial treatment question
Hello, this is my first post. I'm from Chile and I'm in my first year of internship. Once a Rheumatologist told us to not starting prednisone in rheumatoid arthritis suspicion (we don't have access to DMARDs as general practitioners) because at time of referral there will be no objective clinical or laboratory signs of active disease so it would be more difficult to do the differential, so his suggestion was to start only NSAIDs and early referral (although it takes a pair of months here,...

Entering surgery with risk of arthritis
After taking a 23andme dna test, I had two genes found that are both risk factors for rheumatoid arthritis. This increases my risk for rheumatoid Arthritis. With that said, I have no family history of it. I am interested in a surgical subspecialty, but given that result, would it be unwise to enter that field knowing my risk?

Surgical Specialty career options for student with JRA
I'm an M1 with juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, and am currently in the process of investigating surgical subspecialties. My condition is well managed medically, but I am hesitant to get too attached to any of the surgical subspecialties as standing statically for extended periods of time is torture for me and my joints. I do know of surgeons with arthritis who still are able to practice, but I believe their problems are mostly in their hands (which is probably exacerbated by the increase in...
