Hi Swami like the others have said RA is a sneaky thing and will creep up on you my Dr said it is like a slow burning fire if you toss water on it regularly it stays down but stop & it will Flare up.
I did the Wrong thing and after having reactions to a lot of the drugs first tried I Refused any treatment for Years of Course the RA went Crazy
Most Doctors agree that Early Treatment is Best.
Having said that I did try Humira and had a Bad reaction to it That is Not saying You will
So my best advice would be hay give it a go But Get Blood tests Regularly And get the Results Checked, Also Report Any odd things ; Sore Throat , Flu , ect
unfortunately with RA there are Many Different Drugs which means some Will work for You & some Won't and it's a Game of Trial & Error
But Do Start Treatments Early
