    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 GERD and IBS and my Doctor told me to stay off of Chocolate, but not what kind. From everyone I've talked to, they all say it is only Dark Chocolate. Is White Chocolate safe?

    White chocolate doesn't have the compounds in it that 'loosen' the lower esophageal sphincter, but it does have a higher fat content than regular chocolate, so it might be just as bad for your GERD and IBS as regular chocolate is - depending upon your body and your symptoms.
