    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, mainebestlife.

    Your input here is appreciated very much. Just be aware that some of the posts in this WebMD Back Pain Community are months, even years old with the original poster never coming back. Look in the upper right hand of the post to see how long ago the discussion was posted. In this case, you will see that this was posted 1 year ago. To see when a poster's last activity was, click on their avatar picture or user name.

    Thank you, and I pray you are having a blessed and wonderful Wednesday.
