    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,

    not sure about you..but I do know that I have had trouble with swollen try to get the raised up...maybe follow the RICE, ice, compress and elevate...

    The best thing I did was to get on a diet plan called helped me lose weight and got rid of a lot of the swelling..

    I would look for another Rheumatologist. His dx is being set on the fact you don't have swollen feet or hands? That is not the criteria for diagnosis at all. I will hope for you to google FM and get on any credible medical site including using this boards resources and information areas to the right to get educated for yourself. Education is power.

    I see you are answering better so the first question of reply has been taken care of. For me I have to remeber to sign IN before I can post back to someone. That was a big hold up.....

    OK, hoping you are somewhat better and welcome to the board............Nancy B
