    Hope for RA sufferers

    Hi to my fello RA sufferers I'm 55 living with severe degenerative RA for the past 31 years. 8 months ago, my angel Dr prescribed me with Actemra. Kicking and screaming, I decided to trial the drug.

    Yesterday I received the best news in 31 years. My RA is now zero active.

    Although I'm still in a bit of pain from the destroyed joints, it means I can now plan my life without any further destruction.

    If you're suffering destructive RA then please do yourself a favour and ask the doctor for Actemra

    YAYYYY......hello life!!!!
