Living with Rheumatoid Arthritis is a daily struggle for anyone dealing with this painful disease. The thought of going through life, not being able to do the things you once did on a daily basis, will make anyone feel depressed. That's why, having a good doctor that will listen to you is very important.

Working With A Good Doctor

Working with a good doctor is very important because they need to be able to prescribe the best treatment for you. If your doctor is the type that doesn't want to spend time during your visit to question you about where your pain is and, how it is affecting your activities, then you need to find a new doctor.

Finding The Right Doctor

When you find the right doctor that you’re comfortable with, this will make you more willing to talk to them about your symptoms. This is when your treatment can begin. Finding the right doctor is your first step in getting the right treatment that works best for you.

Finding The Right Treatment

After your doctor does the initial testing to find the type of arthritis you have, then they will prescribe a treatment. Sometimes, the right treatment may take a while to figure out. Since everyone’s body reacts differently to medications, it might take a while for your doctor to figure out the right medication for you. Don’t get discouraged during this process; think of it this way, your one step closer to getting relief from your pain.

Trying Medications

Sometimes it takes a combination of medications to work instead of just one. Make sure you explain to your doctor why you feel a medication is not working. Don’t keep any information from your doctor. Your doctor can’t help you if you’re not honest with them.

Follow Your Doctor's Instructions.

When you finally find the medication that works best for you; always make sure you follow your doctor’s orders about how and, when to take it. Also, if your doctor wants you to have blood work done on a regular basis, don’t skip any scheduled blood work. This is a very important step for your continued treatment.
