R.A. Patient
| ToniCinMI
I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis about 17 years ago. It has truly been a roller-coaster ride since then.

I'm sorry about your R.A., I to have it. The flare ups are hell! I'm having trouble with sudden weight gain. At 5' 10", I weighed 134 lbs. for the last 10 years and now in 6 weeks I gained 23 lbs. The only med that is different is that I have been on Embrel since the R.A. diagnoses a year ago. Any ideas?
