Hi everyone. So I'm 24 and was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis last year . I've started taking methotrexate and hydroxychloroquine as well as painkillers.
I haven't really managed to get a straight answer from my rheum team so I thought I'd ask and see if any of you know the answer. What's the goal with treatment? I don't know whether I'm aiming for the pain to not get worse, or to improve or go away or keep fluctuating.
I know it's probably a hard question to answer but I suspect it'll help me a lot if I know where to set the goalposts!
