I'm 49, sero-negative RA, diagnosed 6 moths ago. Still working on finding the right cocktail of meds. Feels as though I'm on the right track to lessening of symptoms with Plaquenil, Methotrexate, Maloxicam and Folic Acid plus numerous supplements.
I realize my doctor doesn't have a crystal ball but I am curious as to the stages of this disease. Is it crazy to ask him what to expect? I'd just like to know if I'll be disabled and if so, any idea when? Or maybe this just goes in stages of disability that just increase? Any feedback is appreciated and again, I realize no one has a crystal ball, just would love to have a better idea of possibly what I can expect...
