I'm no stranger to the world of RA but I am a stranger to the world of remission. I am not very clear - despite doing some reading - of what this actually means. On my current medication combo, I am clearly in a much better state that I was before. I probably have a flare up lasting 7(ish) days every 6 weeks or so. When I last saw rheum, I was doing really well and my DAS was 2 point something, which is obviously fantastic. However, does this make me in remission if I am still having the regular (although a LOT less regular) flare ups? Prior to my current medication combo, I was either flaring every couple of weeks or just in a permanent state of active RA. In comparison, well there is not comparison (!) but I am still perplexed.
