Hi everyone My friend has been diagnoised of rheumatoid arthritis recently and she is only 27 yrs old. She has been experiencing great pain on & off for the past few weeks and seem to grow worse after she has seen the doc. It appears that doc only gave her painkillers and steriods. Is there any other medicine she can take to prevent such pain/ inflammation and prevent this thing from getting worse? The pain has affected her alot and she can't work when it strikes. I am at a loss what to do. If you have any tips or help, please let me know. thanks alot!
