One morning Monica Aggarwal, MD, FACC, found herself on the floor and unable to move. Her joints had grown so inflamed and stiff that she felt nearly paralyzed. When the doctor diagnosed this young cardiologist with the debilitating form of the disease, he said that she needed to get used to the idea of living in pain. Although medication would provide some improvement, this would be her fate and there was nothing she could do to change that.
