I am 25 years old and suffering from rheumatoid arthritis from past 3 years. I am felling pain and swelling in knee joints, elbow joints and others too. So is there ways to reverse joint damage causes by arthritis?

Rheumatoid arthritis is very much controllable disease. With the advancement of drugs for Rgeumatoid people live like other normal people with proper use of DMARDS (disease modifiying anti rheumatic drugs. Drugs will help you preventing further progression of disease and joint damage but once the joints get damaged totally drugs have little role in preventing further progression. So my advice will consult any Rheumatologist of your area who can guide you properly. Hope this will help you.
