  1. I have tried several biologics, pills, infusions and I just am not getting better. I am over 2 years into this and it has changed every aspect of my life. At what point will I ever feel good again?

    1. I am 1.6 years in and ask the same question every day.

  2. Why won't doctors prescribe LDN for RD pain if it works for so many people because it is not a controlled substance or harmful? It would be worth a try to relieve the constant, debilitating pain many of us live with.

    1. I'm just starting my first biologic. Three injections in as of today. So far so good but how long does it take to know if it is helping???

      1. Thanks for reaching out and sharing. Generally speaking it can take a few months for a new treatment plan to reach full it's effect. In addition to speaking with your doctor about your questions and any concerns, this article may be helpful: https://rheumatoidarthritis.net/living/biologic-working. Wishing you relief very soon.
