    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!

    I totally get the weather affecting pain levels, my pain has increased as well mostly because of the drastic weather changes, from unseasonably warm, to freezing!! I hate the cold and live in MN, not by choice. I work as a sub in schools and have the advantage of saying now to jobs when my body is just to painful, but really must work becuase of financial situation. The guilt of saying now makes my stress level increase dramatically which in turn causes increased pain, its a visious cycle. Keep on keeping on.
