Min, the right medicine should keep you functioning pretty normally. You should be able to work! Keep seeking the right combination of drugs (with the help of your doctor).

The more things you do to inflame the body like stairs, walking, lifting and so on you are causing inflammation in the body and making things worse.
My rheumatologist told me I had to either quit working or find a new doctor.

I quit working.

I have been on Xeljanz since 2018 and I truly believe that the Xeljanz has stopped working. My hands are huge from the swelling. I know the RA is progressively getting worse. The pain is truly unbearable at times. Both of my hands feel like they have been smashed in a van door.
