I'm a newly diagnosed Ra woman.
After learning that due to having Hep C in my past I don't qualfiy for many drugs.
Can any one tell me what to expect? Especially since most of the wecsites and chat rooms seem to have members taking Methotraxate or biologics and some kinds of pain meds.
I've been told these are not options for me.
At 56 and in a lot of pain I'm very bewildered.
I cleared the virus over 5 years ago and my liver function tests ar all normal.
