Hello, sorry for your three year battle with RA. Unfortunately, one of the hallmarks of RA is joint destruction and that can include soft tissue and bone tissue damage. When that happens, joints can be damaged. Did your rheumatologist suggest that you see an orthopedic surgeon to check out the damage and figure treatment options? If your joints continue to be damaged, it might be a good idea to discuss your RA treatments to see if they are effective.
