    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.

    Hello to all my friends. I went to see the orthopedist that my back doctor refereed me to for joint pain. And guess what!!! I've got tennis elbow in my right arm. Which means no more computer for at least a week. Just wanted to let you all know why I disappeared for a while. Take care everybody, and hope you all have a happy blessed New Year.

    Sending hugs, see you soon and thanks for letting us know.

    know how painful that is. did they give you a brace for your arm? it gives the tendon a place to anchor to so the inflammation can heal faster. hope you feel better soon.
    jselleck replied to slik_kitty's response:
    Finally can reply!!! Thanks for all the good wishes. No brace but I bought one on my own. It's been helping. So did the break. I'm back now, but may have to leave again. See the doc on Monday afternoon, so we'll see. Take care.
