Over my 30-year career as a rheumatologist, there are common myths I encounter about rheumatoid arthritis (RA) treatment on a daily basis. I try to educate my patients about their disease, their treatment options and I give them clear expectations of the impact it may have on their lives. There’s still a lot we don’t know about RA, but by setting the record straight about what we do know, I can help my patients to feel empowered about their disease and the course of treatment.
