    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 have been fighting depression my whole life, and I was recently diagnosed with fibromyalgia. I don't know if what I'm experiencing now has anything to do with the the fibro or the depression, but I thought that perhaps someone else has gone through this, or maybe someone might know what's going on.
    I have been physically ill for going on two weeks now. I am so fatigued that I am having a hard time keeping my head up as I type this. I have had a terrible headache the entire time. I have nearly fainted on several occassions, and for 3 days now I've been having nausea and vomiting.
    I have four children: a 5-year-old, twin 4-year-olds, and a 2-year-old- so quite frankly, I don't have time to be this sick. I don't have time to go to a doctor, so I don't know what to do.
