    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.

    You will never be cured of RA, just in remission. You will need to be on some sort of treatment for the rest of your life if you want to minimize damage done to your body. I am 25, was diagnosed at 19. I have tried many different treatments and the best for me has been biologic drugs (enbrel, cimzia) with methx. Biologic drugs and methx work great together but can also be taken independently. I would suggest going to a rheumatologist to discuss your options.
    Doctors can be jerks, but don't be afraid to ask lots of questions, take notes on all the info they will throw at you, and even go home to think it over.
    Good luck.
