    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,

    Where is everyone from?
    fibroKimber posted:
    Ive been wondering if anyone is from my area... maybe others have wondered the same thing. It would be nice to know someone that lives around me so we could discuss doctors, local clinics, etc.
    No need to post your exact location (unless you want to) but just a general area... maybe we can "compare notes" with others from the same region!!

    I'm from western pennsylvania (Pittsburgh) What about everyone else?
    Tany84 responded:
    I have no problem saying that I'm from Wichita Falls, TX. Unfortunetly, there are no support groups for FM here so I'm considering and praying about possibly starting one. Is there anyone else on here from this area?

    MissesDj responded:
    I am currently in Savannah, but originally from Chicago. I think this is good to know because the climate affects me and my symptoms.

    TCL38 replied to debw216's response:
    Deb if you're about 20 miles due west of Detroit, you are probably in one of my favorite cities. Would it happen to have two names that start with the same letter

    TCL38 responded:
    I'm a California girl but I live in southern Utah.

    Kimber, my first job out of high school was as a photograher for a traveling photography company. I know your area very well. My territory covered Ohio, Michigan, Pennsylvania and western New York. That feels like a lifetime ago so I can't help you with FM information thought. I hope you find some folks near you though.

    I am from Southeastern Michigan, just north of Detroit.
