Hi...., Treatments include medications, rest and exercise, and, in some cases, surgery to correct joint damage. Your treatment will depend on several things, including your age, overall health, medical history, and how severe your case is.... disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARDs), are the mainstay of treatment, which work by interfering with or suppressing the immune system's attack on the joints.... Consult Rheumatologist....
