    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,

    There were a few members that recommended this book and I just received it today.

    I have only read the Foreword and Introduction, but I already LOVE this book! For anyone with FM, this book is written in our words, by fellow FM sufferers. I just wanted to say thank you to those who recommended it!

    *hugs*


    P.S. Title is: Fibromyalgia and Chronic Myofascial Pain: A Survival Manual
    Authors: Devin Starlanyl, Mary Ellen Copeland

    I loved this book too when I read it... so worth buying. You might also consider signing up for an e-newsletter from Medscape.com. It is mainly for the medical community, but you may be able to access it as well. "Fibromyalgia" is on my topic alert list and I get an email whenever studies are presented in medical journals or at conferences. Very interesting and could give you some "ammo" for your MD's and specialists as well as friends and family.
    Hugs,

    And if you've not already signed up for WebMD's Fibromyalgia (WebMD and Medscape are part of the same company), be sure to do that too. To do that, click on your name in the upper right corner when you're signed in. You can edit/choose newsletters from the next page.
