I have had RA for 13 odd years, and have had very little success with drugs, most of the ones i have tried have suppressed the immune system to the point where i get colds, flu, bronchitis, and the like, i would rather put up with the pain. I recently discovered that hydrotherapy had a wonderful effect on the pain, and have been maintaining it through this activity, also gets you fit! Give it a go if you are sick of the drugs, i found it to be very effective!

I agree with you that a warm water exercise program is extremely beneficial for anyone who has rheumatoid arthritus. That and seeing a nutritionist and biking helped me lose 100 pounds.
