    I'm sorry you're having such a rough time of it - this disease can wreck your life when it flares. Do you have rheumatologist? If not, get one as soon as possible. RA needs to get treated to prevent permanent damage to your joints. The good news is that these days, there are many options for effective treatment and the sooner you get to rheumatologist so you can start medication, the better. If you have financial issues in terms of paying for the medications, the drug companies offer programs so that people with limited financial means will not be blocked from receiving medication - if that will be an issue for you, you can find a list of programs and contact information here.

     

    You don't have to live like this. There is help available.
