Staying Well with Rheumatoid Arthritis

The right self-care strategies can help you reduce and ease flare-ups, and protect your overall health. Ask your doctor:

  • How often should I rest, and what should I do if I have trouble sleeping?
  • What kinds of exercise are safe, and what should I do if I feel pain during exercise?
  • What can I do to make daily activities easier?
  • What vaccinations should I get?
  • What RA complications should I be concerned about (such as heart disease, anemia, osteoporosis, eye problems, and lung problems)?
  • What can I do to stay as well as possible with RA?
