    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 use relaxation breathing for pain, but my head usually is not clear to do it when in a emotional stressful situation. I'll will work on taking that step back.

    I saw something good on "The Dr. OZ Show" He put a cold pak - something like frozen peas you might have handy on the back of the neck and then put a hot pak - a cloth bag of rice put in the microwave will work - on the chest. The two temperature work with each other to ease panic and sooth your nerves centers in you neck/spine as well as heart/lungs.
