Autoimmune maladies can present a daunting task in terms of their identification and treatment. Such disorders arise when the immune system erroneously assaults healthy cells within the body, which results in inflammation and the detriment of tissue and organs. At the Buffalo Arthritis & Joint Pain Center, we are well-versed in the diagnosis and treatment of autoimmune conditions, including rheumatoid arthritis (RA), lupus, and psoriatic arthritis.

RA is a persistent autoimmune disease that predominantly targets the joints. Its symptoms include agony, rigidity, and swelling within the joints, particularly those in the hands, wrists, and feet. RA can also prompt weariness, fever, and a loss of weight.

Lupus is yet another autoimmune malady that can afflict diverse bodily systems, including the skin, joints, and organs. Its symptoms may encompass a rash on the face, joint pain, weariness, and fever.

Psoriatic arthritis is a class of arthritis that can develop in certain individuals who have psoriasis, a skin disorder that causes red, scaly patches. Psoriatic arthritis symptoms may include joint pain, rigidity, and swelling, as well as nail alterations and weariness.

At the Buffalo Arthritis & Joint Pain Center, we take a comprehensive approach to treating autoimmune disorders.  We work in tandem with each patient to formulate an individualized treatment plan that caters to their specific requirements and objectives. Autoimmune issues can be difficult to manage, but with the right therapy and support, one can control their symptoms and improve their quality of life. At the Buffalo Arthritis & Joint Pain Center, we are committed to helping our patients with autoimmune disorders attain optimal health and well-being.

Neuropathy is a condition that can cause a variety of symptoms, including pain, tingling, and numbness. At Buffalo Arthritis & Joint Pain Center, we understand how neuropathy can affect your daily life. Here are some of the most common causes of neuropathy:

  1. Diabetes: Diabetes is one of the most common causes of neuropathy. High blood sugar levels can damage the nerves, causing pain, numbness, and tingling in the feet and hands.
  2. Autoimmune diseases: Autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, and Sjogren's syndrome can cause nerve damage, leading to neuropathy.
  3. Alcohol abuse: Long-term alcohol abuse can damage the nerves, leading to neuropathy.
  4. Vitamin deficiencies: A deficiency in vitamin B12, thiamine, or other vitamins can cause neuropathy.
  5. Medications: Certain medications, including chemotherapy drugs, can cause neuropathy as a side effect.

If you're experiencing symptoms of neuropathy, it's important to seek treatment. At Buffalo Arthritis & Joint Pain Center, we offer a range of treatment options to help manage neuropathy symptoms.
