With rheumatoid arthritis (RA), your body changes over time.
These changes can affect you in ways you never thought, making easy, everyday activities more difficult.
You’ve tried multiple ways to relieve the pain. Then your doctor may have prescribed corticosteroids and methotrexate to try to relieve your symptoms.
If these treatments stop working, don't work as well as they used to, or if your body can't tolerate them, a different treatment may help.
