As humans, we’re hardwired for connection. Belonging to a community makes us feel safe and helps us thrive.

But so often, living with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) can make you feel physically and emotionally isolated. Not only can it be hard to do things you loved before your diagnosis, but it can also feel like no one understands what it’s like.

Until now.

Our mission is to cultivate a space powered by the RA community and empowered by each other. From one-to-one chats to conversation forums, we make connecting easy. This is a safe place to find and receive advice, to seek and offer support, and to discover the authentic stories of members, just like you.

Bezzy RA is a free online platform bringing new meaning to the word “community.”

Our aim is to create an experience where:
- everyone feels seen, valued, and understood
- everyone’s story matters
- shared vulnerability is the name of the game

Bezzy RA is a place where you are more than your RA. It’s a place where, finally, you belong.


Social-first Content
Like all of your favorite social networks, we’ve designed an activity feed to connect you with other members living with RA. We pride ourselves on making Bezzy RA a safe and secure space where you can join live discussions, connect one-to-one, and read the latest articles and personal stories.

Live Chats
Need to vent? Get advice? Share what’s on your mind? Hop into a daily live chat to join the conversation. They’re often led by our amazing Community Guide, but you can also expect to chat with other advocates and experts, too.

From treatments to symptoms to daily living, RA changes everything. Whatever you're feeling on any given day, there's a forum where you can connect and share directly with others.

1:1 Messaging
Let us connect you with a new member from our community every day. We’ll recommend members to you based on your treatment plan, lifestyle interests, and needs. Browse member profiles and request to connect with anyone from our community with members listed as “Online Now.”

Discover Articles and Stories
We believe that shared experiences empower the kind of belonging that can help people not only survive—but thrive—with RA. Our stories offer perspectives and tips from people who know what it’s like.
Get handpicked wellness and member stories delivered to you each week.

Connect Safely Anytime, Anywhere
We take thoughtful steps to build safety, security, and privacy into our platform and foster an environment where members feel safe sharing their personal experiences. Check and send messages, see who’s online, and get notified when a new message comes in—so you’ll never miss a thing.

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!

Me and RA & PSA

I also have Osteoarthritis and each day holds an unusual challenge. I am known as the Bionic Woman in my family but seriously we weren’t promised this life would be all cake and ice cream. I thank everyone including the Arthritis Foundation for coming up with some of the remedy’s for these disabling diseases. Keep plunging on. Fellow sufferers I salute you.

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?
