My husband has just been diagnosed with seronegative autoimmune arthritis. His specialist assured him his caught it early and done no actual damage to the joints. He has prescribed him a two year treatment of methotrexate which he has assured him would give him 97% chance of going into full remission. However research on google doesn’t seem to imply this is the case and I wondered if anyone else has been told this or experienced full remission?

My wife initially had very little improvement with Methotrexate and was totally exhausted all the time. After 9 month she began to have great improvement and now carries on her lifestyle very close to normal. She has returned to work (took a 6 month limited leave of absence) and is doing very well. I wish you the best of luck.

Gawd bless you 😇 for looking after you’re beloved 💑 & asking questions on his behalf, Seuroneg36. 🙏
(He’s very luck 🍀 to have such a caring wife. 👰🤵)
Kindly take comfort 😌 in knowing there’s abundant realistic hope to improve. ☺️
Be wary of ‘talk’ of ‘remission/ cure’, etc. 🤔
Asking how it’s acheived & for how long it’s anticipated to last . . . — are all reasonable follow-ups. 👍👍
[Because individuals can react so differently to meds & various approaches (over time) , disease progression/ remittance, changing circumstances, etc., the crystal ball 🔮 can get a bit fuzzy (unpredictable) ‘where the rubber 🚘 meets the road’ 🛣 . 😳 😯 🤯 ]
Keep questioning 🤔, keep researching 🕵️♀️ 🔎, keep using your gawd-given common sense 🤓 & well-reasoned logic 🧠 .
Very best wishes to both of you, Seuroneg36. 😌 🙏 🍀 🌺 🌞
Thank you all so much great info and all very helpful in helping us navigate this horrid disease
Per responses noted ( healthunlocked.com/nras/pos... ), the Dr Arvind Kaul’s (several years old) video ("Medicine for members: Psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis" healthunlocked.com/nras/pos... ) may hold additional insights as to physician’s positions/ protocols (treatment, diagnosing, med/ drug prescribing, etc.), med expense/ affordability, etc. — irrespective of type of autoimmune disease diagnosed (even though Dr. AK’s focused mainly on Psoriasis & Psoriatic Arthritis (PsA) in that particular presentation). [Inferring the medical system concepts (physician approaches to chronic, lifelong autoimmune disease, drug expense, etc.) are generally relevant/ applicable ‘across the board’ as far as treating/ managing the wide variety of flavours of autoimmune illnesses.] Merely additional/ supplemental insights about how systems/ organisations operate & what patients (& their families) are up against.) 😌 🙏 🍀 🌺 🌞
