    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.

    Hi JFC_1969. I just wanted to say "Hi."

    To me, I feel any treatment that might improve quality of life is worth a try. I hope that with time you might find yourself feeling a little better once in a while, and that might be the beginning of good things happening!

    I think I "know" you from the FM site. I hope you get some info on the ?Metho? injections from these folks who have RA. I've read they may take quite a while to help.
