Hi there im about to start medication since my first time after diagnosis, I would say I have mild rheumatoid arthritis compared to some horror stories I have read but I know this disease can progress quickly does anyone recommend any meds? What side effects have you experienced? Thankyou in advance x

    Depending on which country you live in, I would try very hard to get on biologicals ASAP because for the majority of people, the illness seems nonexistant once they take these shots.
