called "Roadback foundation".. and learn all about how a simple antibiotic can put RA in remission.. 10 years ago i read the book and did it and I'm still in remission....PLEASE CHECK IT OUT... IT WORKS !!
I agree with you Maxwell and my rheumatologist tells me it's best for me to get exercise in every day even if it's small walks. I saw a pain management Dr and he also told me I need to excercise. The problem with that is when I started my pain meds I felt free of pain and overdid it. The most important thing I can tell you is to listen to your body.
Good luck , don't overdo it, and have a great afternoon,
Everyone is different. I took Rheumacaid infusions back in 2002/2003 (6 months). It was a nightmare! I was allergic to it, and got very sick. Also, I ended up in hospital and developed TB. I lost over 60lbs. If you do start treatment, (any treatment) you have to be very vigilant about your care, and make Doctor listen when something feels wrong. Good luck!
After a long talk with my ra doc I was able to get rid of 4 meds that I just did not need they where wiring against each other now it has been 2 weeks without the other meds and I am starting to feel better
@A myRAteam Member Was on Enbrel for 2 plus years was my absolute favorite. I worked out 2xs a day, worked a job 40 plus hours a week. Had periods of pain and had to rest but loved living. I had problems with co-pay too. I called the company for Enbrel asked for a case worker and discussed the co-pay, regardless to say I was happy. Best of wishes Never waste 1 minute of life.
