Dr. Rania Mousa General Medicine
Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic inflammatory condition. Symptoms develop gradually and may include joint pain, stiffness, and swelling. The condition can affect many tissues throughout the body, but the joints are usually most severely affected
The condition by itself will cause you pain allover your body and you may try several medicines to see what medicine will work with you .
A medicine for a person will not work for another and vice versa ,beside you must be patient ,the pain will not go all at once ,it might take time to see the effect of the course and treatmnet plan .The treatment of rheumatoid arthritis must be tailored to each patient's individual case, including the severity of the condition, the effectiveness of specific therapies, and the occurrence of any side effects. Treatment choices may be different for a person with rheumatoid arthritis who has other illnesses.

The onset, severity, and specific symptoms of this condition can vary greatly from person to person.
Rheumatoid arthritis often has a variable course: it can go into remission, follow a fluctuating course, or worsen steadily. In most people with rheumatoid arthritis, the severity of symptoms fluctuates for weeks or months. It is generally impossible to predict how the disease will affect a particular individual.
So It is important to work with your doctor to create an effective and acceptable plan for treating your case and what is the specific management that works with you even if you switch between medicines or have combination therapy .
Good posture and exercise will help in treating your condition and relieve some symptoms.
