    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,

    I went to the site for which you provided a link, (thank you so much).

    It specified that this was for pain caused by an injury to the muscle. I do not understand how this would apply to FMS? I frequently have pain but no injury. They said that the pain is relieved until/unless the area is re-injured. This makes sense if one is treating a sprain or a strain to an area, but this does not always apply to FMS.

    Take care, Annette
