How can I better manage adult-onset Still's disease?

ANSWER

Ask your doctor if there are other steps you can take to manage your disease and feel better. For example, learn how to pace yourself and find ways to manage stress. Rest is important. This may help you minimize the number of "bad" days you have. Also, remember that this disease comes in cycles. Don't stop taking your medications during times when you're feeling better unless you've discussed this ahead of time with your doctor.
