This all flared up for me in September last year and it took a long time before I was diagnosed with RA and Systemic Lupus in February this year and prescribed methotrexate tablets and folic acid once a week and Adcal and Hydroxychloroquine twice a day. Just prior to the flare up last year I suffered a severe flare up of my gum disease which required antibiotics. I have a problem tooth which has a large filling which has flared up before. I've read that gum disease increases your risk of developing autoimmune conditions including RA. I'm planning to have the problem tooth extracted as I think it's the cause of the RA. Has anyone found their RA symptoms have improved after a tooth extraction?
