Rodman - my sister has been postponing the doctor's urging her to get her ankle fused for years now (her problem was caused by a bad break, not RA.) She did recently try one of those immobilizing braces. It did help her pain, but she won't wear it much. I'll have to ask her again about it.
Erin - I hope you have much success with Remicade. It did help my arthritis and colitis (or whatever it was) greatly! Too bad my immune system stinks and couldn't handle the med long term. You are awesome and I'd love to have you as my caretaker any day!
