    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,

    Squarley, sounds like you've got it bad. Have you called your MD yet? Too many Tylenol pills (and they're in a lot of other meds too) can lead to liver disease--very bad news.

    Have you tried plain old aspirin? Take it with a meal or a FULL glass of water. It's the original anti-inflamatory drug, and has over 100 years of research behind it. It's not for kids because of Reye Syndrome, but it's as safe as any med can be for adults. Besides, it's cheap!

    In the meantime, remember that flares do not last forever.
    Sure, the pain will come back someplace else, but what you're experiencing now will pass.

    Towards better days,

    BetteK
