Got Rheumatoid Arthiritis?

Last 2007, I was starting to feel stiffness and pain in my joints. I didn't bother to go to the doctor because I thought it will be relieved by "over-the-counter-pain reliever" but I was wrong. It keeps on hurting and I was worried already. I decided to visit my doctor for a medical check-up and the doctor told me that I have a Rheumatoid Arthritis. He prescribed prednisone as my medication and it really helps. Anyway, I was curious about Rheumatoid Arthritis . So, I did a little research. The cause of RA is unknown but it is said that viruses, bacteria, and fungi have long to be suspected but none has been proven yet. Other say that it is genetic and some say environmental factor. I also read that females are prone to develop RA than males. Regarding the other medications for RA, I haven't tried them because prednisone works perfectly for me. But I believe that these medications (Humira, Enbrel, Orencia, Remicade) are also effective in treating RA. Well, I did a little reading about these medications. It is very well said that the onset of the action can take several weeks or months to demonstrate it's clinical effect while prednisone (NSAIDs) have a short onset of action. If I would given a change to create an ad for a prescription RA medication, I should say, " Control and Manage your RA by taking your regular medication. Remember, medication compliance is the best way to stay healthy and strong".
