Sorry to ask a strange question but as a newbie to RA (earlier this year) theres still so many things i dont know. Unfortunately my rheumy nurse isnt as approachable and forthcoming with info as i would have liked!
I was diagnosed quite early after first symptoms and was just wondering if it always gets worse the longer you have it?
I know from reading questions & blogs on this wonderful site that i am very lucky compared to some people.
Once i get my medication sorted out could it keep it at bay and relatively mild or is it a foregone conclussion it will eventually get worse?
