    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,
    WebMD Message Boards Management

    I've been fortunate to be the moderator here for over two years since the community first started. I want to thank everyone for allowing me to share your stories and lend support upon occasion. I have enjoyed every moment.

    Your new moderator, Lainey, will be taking over on Monday, April 10th. I know you'll really enjoy having her here, and I hope you'll make her feel welcome.

    Wishing you all the best,

    Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there. ~Will Rogers

    Hello community!

    I am very excited to be working in the RA community. I have some arthritis in my hips and beginning to notice it in my hands and knees. Exercise has helped me some. :)

    I am married with 6 children (mostly grown) and also have 3 grandchildren. Looking forward to getting to know everyone and assisting in this community! :)
