    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,

    I'm a newly diagnosed Ra woman.
    After learning that due to having Hep C in my past I don't qualfiy for many drugs.
    Can any one tell me what to expect? Especially since most of the wecsites and chat rooms seem to have members taking Methotraxate or biologics and some kinds of pain meds.
    I've been told these are not options for me.
    At 56 and in a lot of pain I'm very bewildered.
    I cleared the virus over 5 years ago and my liver function tests ar all normal.
