Hi, not sure if I should join this particular group, but I am looking for a place where I can get advice/vent about my chronic pain.  I am currently being tested for rheumatoid arthritis.  Is there a group for this?  Thanks!

There are posts here about chronic health conditions but not "pinned" forums.  If you do a search in this group about your condition your should find some posts and other info.

 Yeah, just searched "rheumatoid arthritis" and the only one that came up was mine!  I'm not sure if I have it yet, but the doctor thinks so.  While the pain is not new to me, this condition is and I am dreading this diagnosis.

I have to live with an autoimmune disease so I know that getting the diagnosis can be scary, but do lots of research, check out various diets that can help (such as GAPs, the Autoimmune Protocol), and definitely surround yourself with supportive people.

I just did a quick search and 32 posts came up. Once you hit "search" you then have to click the down button and select "all-time"
