In brief: Must treat early

Much depends upon the medicines being used and how quickly medical treatment is added after a flare starts.
Often the addition of low dose steroids can instantly make a difference while other disease modifying drugs are used or changed. Check this link: http://www.Arthritistoday.Org/community/expert-q--a/rheumatoid-arthritis/flare-last.Php.
