I`m 27yo woman that was diagnosed with Osteo-Arthritis of my knees 7 years ago (but it all started when i was 15yo). Since then i had a ruptured disc in my back and many times in which my ankles, elbows,hips and finger joints were in severe pain. Are they all connected?
Is Osteo-Arthritis considered a disablility under the ADA laws?
When diagnosed i lived in Israel I was told there`s nothing to be done to help me until i`m much older and then i can have my knees replaced, but in the meantime i have unbearable pain in my knees...Now that i live in the USA, i`m wondering- isn`t there anything i can do to make life easier?
