    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!

    Hello Ed! Still no New DR to figure things out? Ed, if you are still having even Small Seizures, you will Not get your licence reinstated. Reason for seizures does Not Matter! Maybe time for New Med!

    Hugs! Love Candi

    I agree with Candi. A new medicine may be the solution. I am on a driving restriction for at least another 5 weeks so I know that frustration. I hope that your doctor can help you through this. I just recently had to change my neurologist because things that did pertain to my old medicine I was on that he prescribed causing my sodium to go low was "not in his area" so now that I got a copy of my medical records and changed doctors I got a solution. I hope all works out for you soon.
