    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,

    Gone are the good days and bad days. They have been replaced with a series of bad days and worse days. Worse days are spent in a state of vegetation waiting for…actually looking for those bad days. It's the bad day that I'm enabled to accomplish those little things that move life forward.
    I know I'm not alone.

    Sorry to hear. We do have to set new standards for ourselves living with RA.

    Are you having trouble with your treatments lately? I hope you can try a new medicine combo that helps you more. Is it the pain, nausea or fatigue hitting you the worst? Or, all of the above? I wish the best for you.

    Thanks for replying. It's the pain and fatigue. I've been on Methotrexate for almost 2 years. Until recently RA has been managed but lately not so. My RA doctor is working with me to get into a clinical trial for a Biologic med. It's too expensive to consider taking the approved Biologic.

    I understand about the expense! I hope you find the trial helpful.
