I am 37yrs old male. Have problem of vitiligo for the past 15 yrs. Very recently I started feeling pain on joints in the body and at times I found very difficult to walk even & a sudden swelling at my finger joints. A check with the local doctor suggested blood test and found ESR reading 30mm and confirmed rheumatoid arthritis. The doctor made me scary of my career even as I am working as an engineer who has to walk a lot up and down the building daily. Will it affect my career? Can I lead a normal life in future too ? Please reply.
