Hi I'm just wondering, how those on the forum who would describe themselves as in remission or even 95% there 'know'. It might sound a daft question and I suppose it's different for everyone. But, for example, can you do all things you did pre RA (sports, hobbies etc) pain free? Are flares non existent? Or, do you still have to constantly pace yourself and watch what you do, unlike people who don't have RA? Although I am far from there at the moment I just wonder how I'd know what's 'good enough' or whether to strive (and keep pushing the rheumatology docs) for what I'd consider to be pre RA 'normality'. Just curious as to what I can expect and to manage my expectations in the long run... I know we probably all hope for pre RA ''normal' but is this unrealistic?? How good is good enough/acceptable? Thanks!
