    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!


    Yours in health,

    I am really getting tires of Doctors shoving a patient from one thing to another. I have tried Vicodin, Ultram, muscle relaxers, naproxen, heat, cold, long showers. Nothing works. Have degenerative joint disease and scoliosis. Starting therapy soon. I had therapy before shoulder surgery 3 years ago and it did not work..thus surgery. After surgery worked well. I really hate being drug around. He hasn't had me have MRI yet. Which is best..keep seeing him and wait or try to get referral to pain clinic ?
