Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Rheumatoid arthritis is not treatable but manageable and needs supportive care with immunosuppressants and pain killers and physiotherapy to help with the mobility.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
