I'm newly diagnosed with an aggressive case of RA. I've should of been treated years ago. Anyway, now that I know I have RA. I want to educate myself, as much as possible. Can anyone recommend some books they have found helpful?

@Books, I agree with @A myRAteam Member, I use the internet to find information. There are a lot of good articles out there.

I haven't read any books, but on the internet you get a lot of info. I usually go to the Mayo Clinic first for answers. My brother in law is a medical prof. and he suggested that first. I've read many sites and compared them, so that could be a place to start....

I have heard that "the enemy within" is very good reading....I am planning on ordering it for my daughter.

Yes, I have both books suggested and they are good starting points. Websites mentioned are also helpful in focusing on particular isssues and questions you want more information on. I found a list recently of the top 5 RA blogs (which I can't now find) and all were excellent. If you decide to make lifestyle/diet changes, there are some excellent web resources for anti inflammatory diets, autoimmune food protocols, vegan and paleo eating approaches, physical activity, and many others. I highly recommend pursuing something like that. If nothing else, it will help you feel more in control of your RA and empowered to try new things, which is certainly important to me.
