Rheumatoid arthritis: Early, aggressive treatment is helpful in RA to reduce the possible joint destruction. There are good medications now available, so you should see your rheumatologist to get started on something.

Yes: This is the time when it is most essential to have the RA treated aggressively, before bony changes such as erosions occur. It is critical to see a rheumatologist.
