    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,

    Hello and welcome.

    Please read through the Tip at the top of this WebMD Back Pain Community that lists the steps for getting back pain diagnosed and treated. Here is a link to that Tip:

    No doctors reply to posts in this community. We are a group of lay-people who have more experience with back pain than we want. It is both impossible and against the rules in all WebMD communities to provide any type of diagnosis or medical advice. There is now way for any of us to know what could be causing your symptoms.

    You will need to see a doctor for evaluation and treatment.

    I pray you can get treatment and relief soon.

    Not only does this post provide medical advice, it is an ad. Both are against the terms of service in all WebMD communities.

    This post has been reported and will hopefully be deleted soon.
