You will never be cured of RA, just in remission. You will need to be on some sort of treatment for the rest of your life if you want to minimize damage done to your body. I am 25, was diagnosed at 19. I have tried many different treatments and the best for me has been biologic drugs (enbrel, cimzia) with methx. Biologic drugs and methx work great together but can also be taken independently. I would suggest going to a rheumatologist to discuss your options.
Doctors can be jerks, but don't be afraid to ask lots of questions, take notes on all the info they will throw at you, and even go home to think it over.
Good luck.
