    New to RA, need advice!

    About 2 1/2 weeks ago I woke up with both of my hands swollen and throbbing with pain in the joints and wrists. It fades a bit by noontime but every night around 3 am it all returns with a vengeance only now it's creeped up into my elbows and shoulders.
    I'm searching for advice on how to cope with this. How long do your flares last and how often do you get them? What do you do to help? This is so scary and depressing....... Do you take ibuprofen? Have you tried moringa yet?
    My wrists are so weak in the mornings that I can hardly lift a mug of tea.
    Thanks.
