Your Rheumatoid Arthritis Health Status

Getting the care you need to move toward RA remission means asking the right questions -- especially when it comes to knowing how to get and stay well. To better understand your particular RA condition, ask your doctor:

  • How active and severe is my RA?
  • How is my RA likely to change in the future (with treatment)?
  • What's my risk of permanent joint damage?
