Many RA Reference Places

There are many RA reference places that I have tried but find RA Healthline to be the best. It has lots of different areas of information to jump around on! It can pair you up with like patients to yourself but are not committed to do this if you feel uncomfortable. It also has various area sectioned off such as pain and medications, nutrition, mental health areas plus they have an interactive conversation with posted area of concern advertised ahead of time in case you want to jump on board! I LOVE this app!

Please help

I tried to sign up and the app said my phone number was invalid, which I know not to be true, so I exited the app and tried again but it said my phone number has been blocked. I am a bit disappointed as I was really excited to join the community - I really need some support right now - and tried to google how to get in touch with someone who might be able to help unban me, but I couldn’t really find anything. The app support button on this page also leads to a form that says it’s experiencing issues so this was the only way I could think of to get a hold of someone. Is there anything I can do? Or at least some other contact information I can try?
