I was diagnosed with RA this January. I had a flare-up in Jan/Feb, but after taking a lot of NSAIDs and glucocorticosteroids we were able to improve the situation greatly by March. Also, in March I started taking Plaquenil (200mg, 2 times a day). But I'm not sure it's really working... In June I feel like I started having more pain in my joints and now I apply diclofenac gel and taking NSAIDs again. It's not too bad though, comparing to January and February.
I leave on an island right now, about
1000km from major cities and I will return to major cities only in August/September. There are no experienced doctors here, but a lot of pharmacies.
What would you recommend me to do to stop my condition from getting worse? Should I just take NSAIDs and apply diclofenac gel? Or something else?
