Do you see a rheumatologist? Do you take medications besides ibuprofen? Ibuprofen will not do anything to stop the progression of the disease. I was diagnosed 7 years ago and the biologics have been amazing for me. Best of luck

@A myRAteam Member What medications has the rheumatologist given you? Generally you start out on a steroid and then are given methotrexate and possibly and NSAID to help with the inflammation,. Over time if those are not working, a biologic can be added. How long ago were you diagnosed?
