Protecting the Rights of Vaccine Injury Victims

This article primarily concerns autoimmune forms of arthritis and their potential to develop due to vaccination.

Arthritis (autoimmune) is a disorder primarily characterized by degeneration, swelling, and pain in the joints. Numerous forms of autoimmune arthritis exist, and their prevalence varies heavily; 1.5 million adults in the United States have rheumatoid arthritis today, whereas only 20 thousand people per year are diagnosed with reactive arthritis.

Those affected by autoimmune arthritis may experience:

  • Joint pain and deformities

  • Fatigue

  • Weight loss

  • Difficulty sleeping

  • Nodules under the skin

  • Eye inflammation

  • Fever

  • Anemia

  • Pleurisy

  • Dry mouth

What is Arthritis (Autoimmune)?

Autoimmune arthritis is a chronic disease wherein the body is unable to distinguish between its cells and foreign cells, causing the immune system to mistakenly attack its own cells – primarily in the joints. Many forms of autoimmune arthritis independently exist, including rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, reactive arthritis, and juvenile arthritis, all of which have highly destructive effects on the joints of those affected.

Treatment for Arthritis (Autoimmune)

Unfortunately, autoimmune arthritis has no known cure. However, treating symptoms may be possible through medicine and lifestyle modifications. These forms of management include but are not limited to the following:

  • Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs

  • Corticosteroids

  • Disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drugs

  • Managing weight to reduce joint pressure

  • Maintaining a healthy diet

  • Avoiding smoking

  • Regular physical activity with minimal emphasis on joints (swimming, bicycling, etc.)

Managing the symptoms of autoimmune arthritis is crucial as it could otherwise significantly hinder individuals in performing many day-to-day tasks. Lack of treatment may harm a person’s ability to maintain effective function in many social, physical, and psychological endeavors.

Can a Vaccine Cause Arthritis (Autoimmune)?

Comprehensive epidemiological studies suggest that, although cases are rare, a potential connection between vaccination and various forms of autoimmune arthritis very much does exist.
