    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,

    Sure you can. Some people don't have any aggravatng stressors. If you are getting good sleep, if you are in good health, if you exercise and eat right, you have a good chance of having that FM staying mild or even being one of the lucky ones who are "cured."

    When we know what causes FM, we will know how to prevent it from escalating. Untill then, count your blessings! BetteK
