    I found out about 6 months ago I have RA. It has done nothing but get worse. I have heard that going to the tanning bed helps. Has anyone heard of this? If so does it do any good?

    Thanks,

    I don't have RA so I cannot address that specifically, but I do know 2 things:

    1) tanning beds are supposed to bad for people = skin cancer, and

    2) when my fibro is acting up and I'm achy all over, a tanning bed feels GREAT!! :)

    So.......now that I've confused the issue........maybe others will have some more information for you!
