    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,
    WebMD Message Boards Management

    Need Quick Answers?
    Andie_WebMD_Staff posted:
    We know many of our members come to our communities in pain and looking for quick answers to get them some relief. Because communities are made up of real people with real schedules, it may take a day or two before someone responds with an answer.

    So, I'd like to put some resources out here for you that cover some of the most talked about topics. These will get you pointed in the right direction in your research:

    I hope that helps get you some quick answers or at least gives you some useful information to ask your doctor!

    Please let me know if there is another topic you think needs to be listed here.

    Is the Digestive disorder community no longer available? It let me post a reply to someone's thread but won't let me post my own. Help!

    Disregard. It finally let me do it this morning
    Andie_WebMD_Staff replied to natters1974's response:
    Sorry to hear you were experiencing difficulties, Natters. Glad it resolved itself!

    Sometimes we do experience a bit of lag on our boards. Thank you for your patience!

    Thank You! It was giving me some 404 error message that the site was no longer available, which made me think at first that it was read ONLY. Thanks again,

    I need to know about the types of foods to eat when I have Diverticulitis and Diabetes. I also have IBS and lower abdominal pain on the left side. Is that common? What are the possible treatments.
