    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!

    Hello mendy44.

    I have very serious problems with my thoracic section. I can only sleep comfortably mostly on my right side, then a little on my left side. Never on my back and definitely never on my stomach. No one should every sleep on their stomach.

    In the mean time, you can try ice and/or heat to relieve some of the pain before you try and fall asleep again. Of course, don't sleep on the heating and/or ice pad.

    Believe me, I understand all you are going through and more. I pray you can find relief soon.
