    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,

    That is Good News, Nancy. I am really relieved to hear that. I take Biotin, too. DR added Calcium Citrate to my regimen, too. Says it's better than just Calcium. Wants me to take Fosamax but I refuse. I don't care what the percentage/odds are but the thought of side effect of Femur bone breaks is not Good in my eyes.

    I can not take calcium becuase it messes with the Topamax and causes the drug to go up in my bloodstream and he told me that one.

    HE also founf out and is telling ALL of his patients that not only does the magnet kill watches but so can the VNS. I did not know this and have not worn one since it kept short cicuirting. I ahd the battery checked in several watches. The batertty was good but get it back in the watch on either wrist and it short cicuited. so I cna never wear another watch again. Oh, well I have a cell phone in my pocet and that can sere as a watch for now.
