    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,

    tried a lot of doctors and meds till I described my symtoms to an old friend of mine (when I say old I mean she's maybe in her early 80's) well she told me to gurgle a cup/half warm salt water every two hours and man did it work (in 5 to 10min. the pain subsided, hearing returned, the swelling went down enough to use the drips at least) so if nothing else works you could always try old remedies PS. I am not a doctor or trying to play doctor and my old friend isn't either so I would suggest you consult a doctor before trying this and good luck
