    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've had over 50 ECT treatments and never calf pain. Short term memory loss. If you can stick it out the ect's will work for you. Good Luck

    I had the same thing happen to my right rotator cuff. Was told I had a super sustained seizure. Guess my shoulder was not as paralyzed as they thought. Cortisone shot helped. Perhaps some ultrasound will help your calves
