Yes Richard, I would be the example of not taking asprin as I have had a stroke 2 and a half year ago so I feel lucky that I can get buy and walk and normal activities with no ill effects except taking Warfrin (Coumadin) So buy taking asprin is a harmless drug I think. However if you like vegetables then good on ya as that will also thin blood naturally.

I've been taking the 81mg. aspirin daily for about 2 years now. I also have to take another drug for RA which thins my blood. I love vegetables.

Hmmm...my blood must be water by now. That's probably why I freeze in the wintertime. (Ice in the veins. )

Hi Sweety:

Yes, baby Aspirin is Good to thin the blood also so clots don't form. I like the taste of them too. They have about the same affect as the other 81mg. since they are considered low dose. I haven''t used those(for the Kids)since they were younger though. I use the blue-coated Bayer low dose(and NO I'm not advertising. Both companies are Fine). Here's a bit about Aspirin and how it helps the heart.

St. Joseph 81mg Aspirin: America?s Original. Just for the Heart.

Aspirin Fact Center - Dosage Information



I'm sorry. RA is short for Rheumatoid Artritis. You see why I put RA. It comes in mild, moderate and severe types. I have the severe type which is extremely painful when it's out of control and flaring. Through time it normally deforms the joints and the Person can end up in a wheelchair. It can also inflame the heart, lungs and other organs and cause death.

It is an autoimmune disease like Type 1 Diabetes. Some Diabetics do get other autoimmune diseases such as RA, MS(Multiple Sclerosis), etc. One of my Friends is a Type 2 and was dxd. with severe RA about 3 years ago.

I believe Richard from New York, has the mild type of RA.

Oh thanks Terri for the info. My RA test was right on the border apparently, although I'm in pain when I move. I don't know if its muscular or skeletal related. But I was happy to notice in another post that you went off disability. That is very good news and I was glad to hear it. I hope that I one day too will be off disability!

Hi Sweety:

Geez, I'm sorry that you got RA. There is no border line my Dear. Either your test is positive or negative. Of course with 20% of the People, the tests can come out negative but the Person could still have RA.

You sound like you are already suffering the symptoms of RA if that is the type of Arthritis that you have. There are over 130 different types of Arthritis. RA is on top of the list for the worst type.

Are you on disability for something else? They normally don't put you on for RA unless your Rheumy(or GP) fills out the forms with a definite diagnosis for RA. If they say you are on the "border" then that is not a correct diagnosis.

How long have you had the symptoms? I was dxd. in 1984 although I had intermittent symptoms in '83 but didn't have a clue what was going on, of course since I was only 24. I hope that you are on the NSAID's and the DMARD's. You need both and aggressive treatment for RA to stall off the deformities and crippling affects. I'm sure that they've told you all of this.

Well, I hate to disappoint you Sweety but I went off disability because my Husband's wage exceeded the limit not because I'm in better condition. Hey, I can't complain, I've had a lot of Good years in remission with different drugs. I'm on the Biologics now plus the others and not impressed so far. Leave it to me. I always do the opposite of what's expected. The Biologics are supposed to work like lasers with accuracy. Hum Hum!
