Can I get some information about rheumatoid arthritis? If I am right, rheumatoid arthritis can be passed on genetically - I know a fair share of my family members certainly has it! I don't know if that also means that I am at risk, but I would sure like to find out. More to the point, I need to know about any genetic factors in choosing treatment for rheumatoid arthritis, if there is any such factor. Just curiosity, but I'd appreciate hearing our thoughts.
