My own Experience on RA nightmare &.......... -Rhematoid Arthritis

It's been a while since the last writing.  Can't find time to write properly as down with work and personal problem of RA recently.  Guess it's time to talk about it as just getting some very bad experience again.
RA a type of incurable sickness which wouldn't kill anyone immediately but making one suffer and if taking drugs will lead to earlier death.
Some said is a curse from the mighty God until you return to him totally.  Some said it's also a curse from your past sin.  The doctor will say it is you who are attacking yourself and you need to control your emotion.  You cannot be angry, nor sad, just need to be happy all the time which is a bit ridiculous.  You seemed to lost your emotion, your freedom to move and rest a lot.
How to know if you are with this type of sickness?  First sign which is still in the early stage, is the stiffness in the fingers and later to your legs as well.  You will be walking like a robot but will eventually loosen after some time, half an hour or more!  Scary, not yet.  You can check if you are with RA by looking at the ESR through the blood checking.  It cost RM25 if you ask for it in any path lab.  If the reading is less than 20, you are safe.
Well, when you are with RA, you will ask to take other than nothing, which is the best, steroid which only cost RM0.25 per tablet and can be obtain from pharmacists.  There are some other second class equally drugs out there that you wanted to try which effective for some time.
So, back to the story recently, trying out the traditional ways and kick away the drugs.  Go for the Chinese herbs and long wave chair, not forgetting exercise for at least 30 minutes a day every day.  What happen?  All the uninvited pain and suffering visited you.  It was effective again for some time, two months plus now.
The pain just unbearable as it started from the fingers to your toes except your hair.  You will encounter fever in the night as if you were curse for it at the same time which you need to rest yourself totally, in bed.  The pain felt in all the joints as the pain will spread after a year or two, just as what the information in the internet indicated.  You can barely walk properly even if it is a smooth surface, and more pain on uneven surface.  You will able to go up stair case however without much pain but not when going down, it is the worst thing happen to you as you needed support or you will pain until you fall off the stairs.  Scary?  More to be said when you are sleeping as the pain will follow you whenever you turn, unless you sleep one way only which is impossible.  You can't sit too long or you will be having pain to walk again.  Understand why did not spent time writing this few months as was on the try to cure this RA for the time frame of 3 months.  This is the third attempt, hopefully it will work as it was said again work with others.  The truth will reveal soon.  But just can't stand any more of the pains, so end up taking one steroid at 4.30 am.  Will check how long it will give back my freedom of moving today!
Will continue the story again to see if miracle happen in the last month, really hopefully.
