    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!

    I am 47 and still suffering from this condition. I get it nearly everyday especially at work. I get it in meetings, talking with work colleagues and even with friends. I suffer from Social anxiety and have tried to alleviate it by seeing a therapist and through a workshop but it has had no effect. I wear scarves and high collared tops but occasionally people still notice it and ask what it is. A lady at work asked me if I'd been in the sun, so I said I had! I have never been prescribed medication for it and I feel a bit uncomfortable about taking meds due to side effects. I currently take tamoxifen for breast cancer and have hot flushes and night sweats, I think I have gone thru menopause already due to the medication and chemo. It would be good if we could live in a world where one could say I suffer from anxiety and people would accept this and not point out the redness.
