Re: dr's advise on RA help please
I've had RA now for 11 years, I'm doing well with it thanks to mtx and not a severe case.
You must be on a DMARD or a biologic (most still add a DMARD in addition), I know you don't want to but the sooner you accept it, the better and the earlier you get on one the better, this is a proven fact. I avoid pred if at all possible, the side effects are terrible. There will be times that you have to take a steroid but I keep those to the absolute minimum.
