Our expert says:
Celebrex may not be enough for management of RA. Celebrex just helps for inflammation but the goal of management should be to prevent joint damage. You should be on a disease modifying drug like metothrexate plus cortisone. If you can't afford the medication you may need to go to a rheumatology clinic at a provincial/academic hospital. RA is not a joint disease, it is an auto-immune disease affecting the whole body. See http://www.arthritis.org/disease-center.php?disease_id=31
