I found this article minimalistic in regards to rheumatoid arthritis. "RA" is far more complex that a hereditary inflammation of joints. This is actually a disorder where the body's immune system attacks the lining of the joints and causes mild to severe immobility. It can become VERY dangerous, VERY quickly if someone has a severe flare. This may cause risky liability issues. Please encourage professional drivers to HONESTLY evaluate their limits with RA in comparison to the physical demands of driving. RA effects everyone differently. KNOW YOURSELF! Do not allow others to convince you that you are "fine" when you know deep down- you're not. We have enough "cowboy super truckers" out there ruining our profession the way it is. Don't help them out in that manner.
