Inflammation and RA

Posted on April 27, 2018

Inflammation from rheumatoid arthritis is often very painful and disrupts daily life. Managing the inflammation of RA means learning about medications to reduce inflammation, what kind of exercise is safe, and what types of diets may help.

On myRAteam, the social network and online support group for those living with rheumatoid arthritis, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Handling the challenges of inflammation is one of the top 10 topics most discussed.

Here are a few question-and-answer threads about inflammation:

Can I swim and do yoga if it causes inflammation?

I had labs done recently and my sed rate jumped. Has anyone else experienced that?

Has anyone tried turmeric to help with inflammation?

Here are some conversations about inflammation:

My wife's doctor says that she will be crippled in a year if she doesn't go on...

I'm currently researching diets aimed at controlling inflammation…

Can you relate?
