Hello people i am from India aged 27, i had suffered with this horrible desease for nearly 1 year at the age of 22. I had tried too many Alopathic medicines still doesnt worked out. But finally i got some what cure with the help of this Homeopathic doctor named Jenner and i am revealing his personal number without his knowledge as a service to society(+91-9486755957-Jenner) .
And one thing ppl diet maintanance is very important i will just tell the DOs and Donts

DOs
1. Have plenty of chicken.
2. Take bath in warm water.
3. Add Crab and Prawn in DIet excessively.
4. Eat hot foods.
5. Sleep only for 6-7 hrs

Donts
1. DOnt take engergy drinks like Glucovita, Redbull, Monster and Gatorde this will imediatley simulate the disease but i cant figure out why??? Whenever i take this i would suffer a lot so plz plz avoid this.
2. DOnt take Coconut water, Cucumber, Tomato and Excessive curd or Buttermilk- Same scenario as point 1.
3. Mostly try to avoid cold stuffs.

Even this diet maintanace will improve fight against the disease.

My husband has RA and it's been a horrible journey until recently. He is only 32 and has gone through many treatments and is living a pretty “normal” life at this point. He has just recently discovered that he is in a drug-induced remission and is probably going to be on his treatments for the rest of his life. I would like to hear more about the long-term effects of these drugs they are using to treat him or if there is another alternative. In 20 years, how is being on chemo meds and Humira shots going to effect him in the long run?
On another note – this is an inherited disease. It appears that some people can carry the HLB27 gene yet are unaffected. So, just because you don’t know of someone in your family that had it, does not mean they did not carry the gene or that they still can’t get it. My husband’s mother is also HLB27 positive, but is unaffected by RA – at this point. Hope this helps.
This is definitely an inherited disease. My dad had it, I and two of my sisters have it. It took five years to settle on a combination of meds that worked for me.

Don't throw out questions like that, too easy. Love Rowdy and you too much to have fun with that at your expense. Several posters, I'm running with it.

I just wanted to know what helps him.

I care less what the morons think of me or him.

They can laugh all they want about joint pain.

They won't be laughing when it occurs to them.

Do you have any ideas?

I know what your intent was, but you have to admit that was an easy lob to take if I so chose.

My opinion, RA is one of those diseases that needs to get treated on an individual basis; what works for one, doesn't necessarily work for another. I'm not an expert on this subject, you know you don't fall into a category of peeps that I take care of, you're not elderly or MRDD.

RS........for now methotrexate, prednisone and aleve are keeping the most severe flareups at bay. I tried plaquenil and celebrex,plaquenil is notorious for causing retinal pigmentation,couldn't take that anymore and my former doc took me off celebrex about two weeks before she retired. Massive doese of prednisone early on in my treatment has caused lasting effects but I'm down to 5 mg. daily now.

Ok,Miss Smartypants. Seriously you are right, no two individuals are going to respond the same. Dosages and meds are going to be different for everyone. Infusion? NOT for me at this point.

I know I'm right, dipwad (meant with love). There are certain diseases that don't have a pat answer, RA being one of them. Hubby has a C4-C5 neck injury, celebrex, dream drug for him right now, he's 39, it will not be a long term solution d/t side effects that will eventually set in. It will be surgery, but where the injury is, scares the crap out of me. Find a solution that manages the pain, do it for as long as tolerated, then come up with a new solution.

Celebrex worked for me, but my former rheumatologist's husband was a cardiologist and they shared ideas at dinner every night. She allowed his opinions to influence her too much in treating her own patients. I realize celebrex is a black boxed drug but it worked for me. I had way fewer flareups when I was on it. Hope your hubby finds relief soon.

celebrex is what I was prescribed.

it works; but scary because of side effects.

I don't take them till I have to.

thanks for your reply.

hope both of us get rid of flareups.

You really don't have to worry about the side effects if you are taking it prn and you're not old enough to worry about GI issues, although I don't know what else you're on. You're active and fit, take it when you need it without fretting. New drugs always coming out...

He has relief, for now. This will not be a permanent solution. Going back to what I just responded to RS, he takes it prn technically, but I would label it routinely.

I apologize, I write/type out of habit. Hubby laughs when we're at Krogers and I sign the check with RD on the end of my name, hello, I sign my name that way at work 50x a day. prn= as needed, GI= gastrointestinal tract.

We can do lunch whenever you want. Missed you at Jerks on Cinco, refresh your memory, I invited. We live close enough to each other, easy enough to arrange. You're busier than I am and with my flex schedule, your call.

If some of the RS haters only knew what a sweet soul you really are.

Do I like Mexican? I only go to Mexico twice a year. We can do Mexican, make sure wherever you pick I can find it, you know me. 1:00 or 2:00 at the latest, son graduating on Saturday and parents coming down on Friday afternoon/evening. Don't you renege, what a delightful diversion from the stress of the festivities. I can just beat you up as I enjoy a bowl of guacamole and a tecate :)

Love Modelo also, anything other than Corona or Dos Equis. Modelo is our fav here when I buy Mexican beer, Sol is also pretty good. I have a story that would not shock you about each beer I just listed, all occurred in Mexico.
