    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.

    So I've got good news to report for a change I've been on this Lupus drug study and I have felt the best I have felt in a few years!!! minimal to no pain some days and no more chronic fatigue I've been able to come off the prednisone and several other meds and only take Aleve occassionally for pain no more narcs.. I actually feel somewhat normal again.. Its been a long rough road but I'm feeling more hopefully each day and still smiling.. I'm praying for each and everyone on here for healing..

    Happy New Year Lupie friends!!!
