How to gain control over #osteoarthritis #OA and keep it

Get and Keep Control of Your RA | Rheumatoid Arthritis Blog | Arthritis Foundation  |  14 May 2018 

Get and Keep Control of Your RA

When your disease is under control, you may be tempted to stop taking your medication. But doing so is NOT a good idea.

Advice from Arthritis Foundation


‘Most doctors begin hard-hitting treatment as soon as rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is diagnosed. Research shows that even in the first months after diagnosis, joint damage can occur if the disease is not treated aggressively, says Paul Howard, MD, a rheumatologist at Arthritis Health in Scottsdale, Ariz.’
