   schema:description "Mary Felstiner went to bed one night an active professional and healthy young mother, and woke the next morning literally out of joint. With wrists and elbows no longer working right, she'd discovered one of the first signs of rheumatoid arthritis, the most virulent form of a common disease. While arthritis pain affects one out of three Americans, this book is the first to tell the personal story of the nation's most common yet neglected disease. Part memoir, part medical and social history, Out of Joint folds the author's private experience into far-reaching investigations of a socially hidden ailment and of any chronic condition. Moving from the 1940s to the present, this story of one life with arthritis exposes little-known medical research and provocative social issues: controversies over miracle drugs, demands concerning disability, and the surprising and disproportionate number of women affected by chronic illness.--From publisher description."@en ;
