autoimmune illness and constant symptoms

I was recently diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis. I've had HSV-2 for 5 years. About a year or so ago I started having an increase in outbreaks. I am now on suppressive valtrex. 1 g 2 times a day and I still have mild ob's once in a while. i'm not on meds for the RA yet. Does anyone know if an autoimmune disease can trigger more outbreaks? Please help. Are there people who have taken Valtrex and not had much success with it?

BTW: I am neg for all STDS including HIV

Thanks
