Dealing With RA

Living with RA can be complicated so here are some ways to deal with your RA.

As a mother of two I was diagnosed with RA a year ago. When the doctor gave me my test results i felt like my life was over. As time went by I've learned to deal with RA. The first step is learning how your RA effects you. I've noticed that my RA affected me more in the morning and later at night after daily activities. I was prescribed medication by my Rhematologist. These medications consisted of prednisone and Leflunomide Because of the side effects, I decided to take natural supplements. Before deciding to take natural supplements check with your Rhematologist. My daily treatment for RA consist of light exercise in the morning after breakfast. 15 min belly dance workout which works your entire body and puts less strain on your joints. I also take 2 Glucosamine chondroitin complex advanced pills or Move Free pills. What these supplements does is inable you to move freely by lubricating the joints. It also Protects the joints from damage and over time it can rebuild cartilage. Four hours later I take a omega 3 fish oil pill. Do not combine supplements because it takes away the effects of taking the Glucosamine Chondroitin complex, Move Free and it may not work. Another important factor of dealing with RA is to eat healthy. live a stress free life. Stress and depression can cause joint pain. When stressed you may notice that the pain from Rhematoid Arthritis gets worst and makes it harder to deal with. There is no cure for Rhematoid Arthritis.  These are some ways to alieviate the pain. Having Rhematoid Arthritis is a life changing experience. However you do have control. Do not let RA control you. Talk to your doctor about the natural things that can be done to control this disease, Rhematoid Arthritis is hereditary. Usually if your mother, father, or any other relative have it, then it's a possibility that somewhere down the line another family member will get it. It can occur at anytime and is usually brought on early by stress or something traumatic occuring in your life. I am 26 years of age and I have Rhematoid Arthritis and this is how i deal with my RA.
