    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,

    There are many things that can cause upper and middle back pain, including overuse, muscle strain, poor posture, osteoarthritis, and more. In rare cases, cancer, gallbladder disease, or an infection can cause upper back pain. Here is some more information . Have you seen a doctor about your pain? He/She may be able to diagnose what is causing your pain and offer you some treatment options. You may also find it helpful to post any questions or symptoms that you have to our Back Pain Community . Please let us know how you are doing!
