In need of more information about this disease if anyone has it. I am waiting for my informational appt with my doctor but am looking for info in the meantime. Questions are: what is prognosis? How does disease usually progress? DOES it usually spread to other joints, or is it impossible to know for sure if it wiil? Is it the same as pseudogout and CPPD or just associated with them..how does it differ? Is it a rheumatological disease or metabolic? I've heard it described as both and I'm not sure what the difference is. Thanks to anyone that can help me while I wait to see my doctor!
