Rheumatoid Arthritis Treatment
Last updated: April 2023
Good morning hi all,
I’ve been diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis in 2011.
I took meds for a year and a half, then stopped taking them and changed to a strict alkaline diet.
RA symptoms re-emerge
It worked fine for 7 years, but once I was into menopause, the pain came back.
I got a severe flare-up on my ankles and couldn’t move for 5 days.
Luckily it calmed down and had no disability after that, but had pains all over.
I saw a rheumatologist and started meds again. Now after a year and a half he changed them as my RF is 200 … super high!!
Are biologics working for others with RA?
Changed to biologic injections now and am concerned about side effects. Anyone taking these like me?
How is it going, did it calm down inflammation and suppress pain? Any severe side effects?
I’d like to know how people taking this injection are coping … thanks and looking forward to hear from you all
Take care all x
Did you know rheumatologist Dr. Donica Baker is answering community questions?
