Pain Tolerance and the Chronic Pain of Rheumatoid Arthritis

“While you might expect healthcare professionals to understand better than most people the long-term impacts of living with chronic pain, I don’t always feel like this is the case. There have been quite a few scenarios where I felt like a healthcare professional wasn’t taking me seriously when I said I was in pain because I didn’t look like I was in pain.”

How I look vs. how I feel
Hard to hide “pain eyes,” but I always try for a positive attitude, despite bad chronic pain. After over a decade, I’m used to pushing through and functioning the best I can – with a smile.
