    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.

    No one, including a seasoned medical professional, can offer you an accurate diagnosis based solely on your symptoms. This is going to require a hands-on examination by a medica provider. Clearly, the treatment that you have received thus far is not working, so it will need to be revised.
