She also explained that she got burns from using heating pads. As noted by Daily Mail, O’Neal first noticed symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis in her late 40s. However, it wasn’t until she turned 50 that she got diagnosed by the doctor.

Since getting diagnosed, Tatum has had to upgrade her lifestyle and diet to adapt to her body. She explained to Arthritis Foundation opts for wild salmon rather than meat and fried food.

Tatum also does floor stretches and Pilates in to manage the inflammation effectively.
