What Kinds Of Things Would Make Exercise More Accessible For You? What Challenges Do You Face Staying Active?

I am a personal trainer and my focus is helping folks with RA stay mobile and build strength. Since I have RA myself I understand how hard it can be to stay consistent and work through tough days. I would love your feedback to help make me a better trainer.

That sounds so frustrating. Not being able to get around freely is hard. Wishing you good luck on your appeal.

Has Anyone Had Truxima Infusions? What Can I Expect?

Has Anyone Had Truxima Infusions? What Can I Expect?

I've been on weekly Actemera shots for about 7 years. My doctor thinks they are not working anymore and wants me to take infusions of Truxima. Im not sure I want to. Have you found relief with this drug? Initially I felt great on Actemera so I think my doctor may be right but injections was a huge step for me. Ive had RA for almost 28 years now so, I dont really remember what a person should feel like if they didn't have RA. Also, being in my mid 50's is it realistic to think you won't have pain… read more

Tanning Bed?

Tanning Bed?

Do any of you use a tanning bed while on your various medications?
I don't use one regularly. I just like to use one before we go on vacations so I don't burn to a crisp. However, it's been over four years since I've used one and now I'm on things like methotrexate and plaquenil, so I wonder is it safe to tan a little before the big trip to Florida.
