I am 68 years old vegetarian male, height 165 cms, weight 66 kgs and suffering from Rheumatoid Arthritis since last 10 years. Main areas of the body which are affected are - Both Ankles, Both Wrists, Both Thumbs and Two Fingers in left hand. A Few Orthopedics I had consulted invariably put me on one or the other pain killer which had no long term benefit or relief. On the contrary, two years ago, suddenly I started feeling very weird in my head and entire body. After going through MRI, Blood and other tests, I was diagnosed with Hematoma and had to undergo brain surgery. Within one month of the operation, I was back to normal - I thank God, my family members, the Neurologist and the Surgeon for all this success. Since than, I have almost stopped taking Pain Killers unless absolutely required for stiffness, pain and swellings, although I know it gives only temporary relief and Adverse Side Effects in bonus! Now another Doctor has suggested me to consult Rheumatologist, but I am unable to find one where I live. Can any Rheumatologist suggest me appropriate cure for this ailment with all DO s and DONT s, the food, medicines etc I should consume and all the relevant information with details? Is this disease really non-curable? I would certainly and very much appreciate it. Sincerely, B.J. Trivedi.

my wife was diagnosed for rhematoid arthritis in 2003, prescribed folitrax 15 mg/weekly and lefra daily dose for 4 years. Subsequently diagnosed by a leading rheumatologist to be free of rhematoid arthritis but suffering from fibromyalgia and adivsed pregabaline and tryptomer, which medicine was taken for two years. Subsequently as my wife started complaining pain in her hands predominantly and also in her shoulder area the earlier doctor was contacted who advised that the diagnosis of the leading rheumatologist was wrong as it was done when the patient was also on dose of folitrax/lefra and my wife indeed is suffering from Rhematoid arthiritis, and has prescribed folitrax 15mg /weekly + HCQS 200 mg daily+ pregabaline 150mg + tryptomer 25 mg+ Cipcal and ultracet/medrol16mg on sos as per need. There is no perceptable deformation in her fingers etc. neither she is RA positive although her ANA is positive.Now my query is, is she really suffering from RA or only a patient of FM and further whether the continued prescription of folitrax/HCQS in such an eventuality do any harm to her?
