    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.

    Doing everything I can to help myself. And still every day for the last several years, the body screams with pain and fatigue.

    I've had too many bad days in a row and it's been a long time since I've had a tolerable day, which I Always look forward to! - love them, but they are few and far between.

    Some days I cry. If only I could get a massage every week. Depressing and sad. Sorry to complain, but geez...

    Good Morning,

    You know we all get in a bad place and see no light in the future for us. This is so draining to carry everyday. I have used a trick for myself to get a pedicure for 10.00 and that gives me the massage chair for 30 minutes.....so "free really" and the toes look good and the massage of the legs is good...

    Maybe try that? Keep the seat upright as the balls get more intense as you lay back when you body weight lays on them.
    If they are too much period...bring a blanket to separate you from them. (who cares what anyone thinks...) you are taking care of you.

    Those balls are just right in the spine and shoulder area...even better then the real one sometimes. so maybe try that?

    Good luck, hope you get some relief soon.......Nancy B
