Rheumatoid Arthritis
Posted Monday, January 26, 2015 03:43 PM

Since I have been diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis just this year, I was wondering if any one else is struggling with this disease.  I would love to share thoughts (treatments, etc) that you've been going through. My doctor has not been able to get it under control;  he has not found the right medication yet.  My steroid treatment is going into it's 10th month and the chemotherapy "methotrexate"  doesn't seem to be working entirely.  He has not indicated any foods that should be avoided, but I'm thinking there must be some...............

Please share your thoughts, if interested.

Thanks!

Sue

Sue, My Grandfather had your same disease. All I can say regarding it is. Keep moving, and if you have it in your hands use a tennis ball and keep opening and closing your hands with it. Years ago they didn't have much one could do for my Granddad. Take care.
