  • Lots of great medications for RA and how YOU deal with health issues and how you let it effect you is how good or not your golden years will be.

  • Oh dear, I do not want to think of that. I have spine problems at 25, I don't even want to think of how bad it can get later in life for me. You'll most likely be better off though.

  • On the up side they make huge advances and strides in medicine almost daily. Long before you see your golden years they coud discover a cure for RA.

  • Our daughter has R.A. and she is on an alternative therapy that has worked really well for her. I also have a friend who is older than I who has it, and she goes out to Arizona during the winter months and rides her bike. So you might consider something like that. Just don't give up on life!!!

  • A lot of medications, trips to the dr, and how you deal with it is completely up to you. Lots of people lead very happy lives.
