I do! Good time to get it as there is a cure on horizon!!

in meantime, watch your diet as some foods are triggers for it , take all the drugs you can to prevent bone damage..mine flares up with stress so make sure you rest a lot.. but there are some good treatments compared to 10 years ago...

i wondered if rest is good, or if its still good to excercise??
Im self employed so cant take time off to rest and have children so cant rest!!! LOL!!!

But did not know if you carry on as normal or try and rest joints.
Cos in the morning after rest its SO bad in my wrist and fingers.
