I don't have deformity or inflamation. The intermitent pain that i do have from time to time is bearable. I also wonder if I subconciously bring symptoms on. Ie I can have no chest pain for 3,4,7 months,yrs etc, or no joint pain, and as SOON as I think about it, it comes on. I think the mind is a powerful thing, as it's happened at least 10 or more times. 15 YRS later and no serious/debilitating pain, the most pain is when i went to the ER 15 yrs ago, and got the "diagnosis" 2 days later. The bloodwork ruled out lupus,lymes, and other liver related diseases. Only reason I am in no rush to follow up is bc i hear that most ppl do better off meds and many who are on them have side effects. I would most likely take the natural approach(herbs, natural remedies etc) if it came down to it. It seems other than eat right and exercise there's really not much to be done about it, or am I missing something?
Not looking for a dx, just want to talk with other BTDT.
Anyone have mild to no symptoms but have been dx with RA?
