These Photos Show The Problem With Excess Skin After Extreme Weight Loss
By the time Tatiana Bobbitt lost 190 pounds, she knew she had a problem. It had been 21 months since her successful bariatric surgery, and while she had shed nearly 200 pounds from her 5’11”, 450-pound frame, her body was covered with loose, stretched-out skin. Bobbitt put on the weight in adolescence and now credits her gain to the fallout from her sexual assault -- the stress of keeping a painful secret, as well as the side effects from different depression medications and mood stabilizers. These caused her to balloon to 275 pounds by the time she was 16 years old. At 19, she was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis...

The Degradative Soup of Injury and Arthritis
New studies have shown that when a meniscus tissue is torn in the knee, enzymes and factors are released, creating a degradative soup that affects healing and eventually leads to arthritis. Injury to joint tissues used to be thought of in primarily mechanical terms. Torn ligaments led to instability; a torn meniscus led to arthritis, both from the window wiper effect of the tissue in the joint and the force concentration from losing the shock absorber; impact injuries led to bone and cartilage death. [1] We now understand that this thinking was far too narrow. Papers presented at the 29th Meniscus Transplant Study Grou...

A new study outlines a chemical compound with potential for treating rheumatoid arthritis. Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic autoimmune disorder that affects an estimated 1.3 million people in the world. Characterized by stiff, swollen joints, it's a progressive disease that occurs when the body's immune system attacks its own cells. Inflammation in the lining of the joints leads to loss of bone and cartilage. People who have rheumatoid arthritis lose mobility and joint function without adequate treatment.

The Unexpected Reason We Tend To Be Healthier In The Summer
By: Agata Blaszczak-Boxe Published: May 12, 2015 01:05pm ET on LiveScience. The activity of human genes changes with the seasons, and with it, immunity changes too, according to a new study. Seasonal changes in gene activity mean that the immune system revs up inflammation in the winter, researchers found. This may help explain why the symptoms of inflammation-related conditions — such as heart disease and rheumatoid arthritis — often worsen in winter, and why people tend to generally be healthier in the summer. "Our results indicate that, in the modern environment, the increase in the pro-inflammatory status of...

Study finds seasons may affect immune system activity
ConclusionThis research found seasonal variations in gene expression in one type of white blood cell. Some genes became more active in the summer months, while others became more active in the winter. For example, one gene involved in the body's anti-inflammation response was increased during the summer, while some involved in inflammation were increased in the winter. The researchers also found seasonal variation in the numbers of each type of white cell. These patterns were different in samples taken from people in the UK, compared with people from The Gambia.Because of the observational nature of each study, it is not p...

Our immune systems vary with the seasons, according to a study that could help explain why certain conditions such as heart disease and rheumatoid arthritis are aggravated in winter whilst people tend to be healthier in the summer. The study shows that the activity of almost a quarter of our genes (5,136 out of 22,822 genes tested) differs according to the time of year, with some more active in winter and others more active in summer. This seasonality also affects our immune cells and the composition of our blood and adipose tissue (fat). (Source: ScienceDaily Headlines)

The condition may occur with other chronic pain conditions, such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and lupus. The exact cause of fibromyalgia is unknown, but researchers believe it could be the result of several factors, including genetics, illness and physical or emotional trauma, which lead to an abnormal processing of pain.

These injections deliver drugs that mimic the effects of two hormones, cortisone and hydrocortisone, to reduce inflammation and help relieve pain.
