Hello,

I have studied your case with diligence.

I can help you better if you post x ray reports and blood reports to me.

NSAIDs, DMARDs (disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drugs) are sometimes prescribed in severe cases.
Newer biologics have role in RA.
Rheumatoid arthritis is chronic disease and may need time for recovery.

There is good role of diet and achieve correction through it, for details you can directly contact on my profile
