good for you! keep the faith and you know what?...stick to it as long as you can. if this is working for you, that's wonderful. not too many people can be so successful with supplements and naturapathy so you are very fortunate. i wish you the very very best.
with RA, it is a chronic and progressive disease. it does have potential to go into remission. some remissions can last months...some years...some decades! every case is unique. some doctors will keep their pt.'s on medication during remissions as mantainance and a precautionary treatment; while others will order meds stopped or leave it up to the pt.
do keep track of your signs & symptoms and your progress.
keep us posted! what is it you are taking?
great to hear from you.

I can relate to your frustration. It is very hard sometimes for me too. I have had RA since last year. Well I actually should say I had a DX since last year. I'm not really sure how long I have had it. I know that for the past few weeks I have been feeling the pain and other things have shown up. I am still working which I am thankfull for. I work 4 days a week as a security guard. But I do alot of walking so by the end of the night I want to scream . Anyway it is true that RA can go into remission although I like many others haven't had that opportunity. Keep the faith Rosa and try everything you can. If you caome across anything that helps please let us know.
