    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

    What do you when you are working and in a flare?

    I started working as a seasonal part-time cashier to help my family, moneywise. For the first 3 weeks I was doing okay, just a some pain at the end of the day. Now I am in a fibro flare! It hurts just to stand up, let alone move. I get home from work and take a hydrocodone but it is not helping. I usually only take hydrocodone 3 or 4 times a month. I am resting when I can but we really need the extra money.

    What do you when you are working and in a flare?

    I'm sorry to hear that. We do what has to be done but it isn't always easy. I was able to get a different job inside the plant where I work with better hours. Make sure you get enough sleep and down time if you have to work. I hope things get better for you.
