Recently Diagnosed, Having A Hard Time Finding Research/ Information.

What information/ advice has helped you the most? Is there any more natural way to treat this? I am very scared of the long term side effects of methotrexate. I'm 25 and am hoping to live a healthy life not in a wheel chair.

Thanks for the tip on Pinterest will look for recipes. I have minimal pain with warm swollen joints. Have tried humira, enbrel, kevzara, methotrexate and prednisone and still flaring. I did reduce sugar and carbs which turn into sugars in your body.

Try to watch vids in YouTube like Dr.Axe, I'm not a diehard fan but his reasoning are on the spot. I have minimal pain in my joints now thankfully, I'm on Prednisone 5mg and Hydroxychloroquine with Vit D everyday. Best of luck to you.

Water is your best friend. I also drink turmeric detox tea everyday. Try to stay away from salt and sugar as much as possible.My RA is super aggressive and ive been in an awful flare for over a year now and still havent found meds that work (right now im a month into methotrexate shots and xeljanz pill once daily with no improvement...i have to take prednisone to walk.) But i try everyday to accomplish atleast one thing...stretching,dishes, i usually pick cooking cz i love it...just anything. Some days i get 3 or 4 things done...maybe 5 or 6 on a good day...but even on the worst ones i make sure to atleast do one thing that involves a short but decent amount of motion. I think my only downfall is the caffiene part. I cant live without it cz of all the meds im on but it makes me swell pretty bad and just adds to the pain. Atleast i think so. Either way good luck babe. Im 37 and was just diagnosed in Dec. Its been a rough road...just stay optimistic. Research everything and ask questions. Pinterest has alot of info and recipes as well. Take care 💚

I am also very afraid of the side effects of methotrexate. I am newly diagnosed and have been researching natural remedies but so far haven't hit on anything that might help
