If this RA is genetic as most people think then I feel extremely lucky to have been diagnosed at 75 years,.
As a child growing up, I can only remember my mum being doubled up in pain and having to go on her hands and knees and climb slowly upstairs to bed. She died when I was 21 of cancer . I am 80 now and the help I receive is tremendous as compared to how it was in the early 40s
With all of this progress being made in today’s scientific labs , especially gene therapy, how come that they haven’t come up with a cure yet. I was disturbed to read that the pharmecutical companies are afraid that they will lose money and people will lose their jobs once people like us will no longer have to rely on dmards and steroids,. Surely health should take preference over wealth????⛑⛑⛑
