Want to know more about RA?

RA GuyOne of my favourite Rheumatoid Arthritis blogs is Rheumatoid Arthritis Guy and I regularly check out his blog for new updates.

One thing I came accross recently was his 60 second guide to RA, which I think sums up the main points perfectly. If you aren't too sure exactly what Rheumatoid Arthritis is and who it effects, I suggest you take a look :)


  1. My uncle is diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis, believe me he feel tremendous pain. Doctor has prescribe him azathioprine med. We also done some research and found fish oil supplement are also beneficial in treating rheumatoid arthritis. Any suggestion?

    1. I think that in both the medical and diet sense, we all react very differently, so what works for some people, may not necessarily work for others. I have heard that reducing gluten intake has helped many people, but for myself, I would find this too hard to cut out.

      My best advice would be to try lots of different things and keep a diary, so that you can monitor the effects.

      For me personally, when I'm having a particularly bad flare, I find the best thing to do is nothing! I get as much sleep as I can at the weekend and try to do very little in my spare time. I keep off my feet as much as possible by reading or watching films. Resting inflamed joints is essential.

      Hope this helps.
