    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,

    Hi Cdp,

    Are you sure it's Rheumatoid Arthritis and not Osteoarthritis? Either way, is she getting any help from her doctor, any pain management?

    And if it is RA, I encourage you to post on our Rheumatoid Arthritis Community .

    As Caprice said, she needs to be seen by an orthopedic surgeon and/or a Rheumatologist if she truly has RA and not OA. Then there are knee replacements that can be done which should end the pain.
