Suffering from rheumatoid arthritis is not fun at all. There are times because of the pain you can't do anything. Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic illness that can last for long. It causes chronic inflammation of the joints. There is no known cure for rheumatoid arthritis however there is a treatment to reduce the pain. The treatment can also reduce inflammation, can maximize joint function, and prevent joint destruction and deformity. There are 2 kinds of medication for rheumatoid arthritis. Drugs like aspirin and cortisone are considered First line drugs which is use to reduce pain and inflammation. The second kinds of medication is the second line drugs like Plaquenil which prevent further joint damage and promote disease remission. Sometimes rheumatoid arthritis pain is unbearable that makes a person emotionally depressed. The Good thing is doctors have been finding treatment for rheumatoid arthritis. Today there are a lot of treatments for RA and helps RA patients to enjoy life again without the pain. Using Enbrel helps stop the pain for RA though you have to check with your doctor before using it. ENBREL is a medicine, called a tumor necrosis factor (TNF) blocker, that blocks the action of a substance your body's immune system makes, called TNF.ENBREL can reduce the amount of active TNF in the body to normal levels, helping to treat your disease. What I don't like about ENBREL is that it can lower the ability of your immune system to fight infections. If I could make an ad for RA, it will say Fight RA and live pain free, take Enbrel.
