Subject: Re: Arthritis progression
I think with RA we really have to be the patient patient. Its not the same as going to the doctors, getting some medication and then we feel better within a week or so. Meds can and do take several weeks to start to work, so hang on in there, most of us with RA have been there.
I was diagnosed with RA in May 2008. I am now taking one of the newer drugs, an anti tnf called enbrel along with MTX. Started taking it November 2012 and twelve weeks later was in remission and still am.
There is a life with RA once you are on the right meds.
Andyswarbs...while Im not dismissing changing diet to help with RA I am interested to know if you are taking and prescribed medication as well, or if its all down to what you eat.
