    You don’t have to be an athlete like Terry Bradshaw to have sore joints! The former Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback and NFL Hall of Famer is the official spokesperson for September’s Rheumatic Disease Awareness Month, sponsored by the American College of Rheumatology and its (ACR) Simple Tasks campaign.

    Bradshaw is one of over 54 million Americans living with a rheumatic disease. Seeing a rheumatologist and getting treatment changed Bradshaw’s life, and he and the Simple Tasks campaign want to raise awareness about the symptoms and impact of the over 100 types of rheumatic diseases so they can change other American lives, too. Common symptoms of rheumatic diseases include chronic joint pain, stiffness, inflammation and fatigue. Despite making daily tasks such as getting dressed, eating and driving difficult, they often go unnoticed. If you or a loved one are experiencing these symptoms, you may need help from a specialist. Know the signs and ask your doctor if you should see a rheumatologist. For more information on rheumatic diseases and their symptoms, visit www.RDAM.org. Show less
