    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 agree with everyone about the pain and depression. I have found that taking malic acid with magnesium helps. I am diabetic, so I won't try any of the meds like Lyrica because I can't afford the side effects. I do take neuronten for neuropathy, effexor xr for anxiety attacks, so maybe taking the malic acid with those and ibuprofen is what is helping my pain. I do have flares when the weather and seasons change, but I am mostly functioning on most days. I have also found a
    massage therapist that is specifically trained for fibro and she does
    wonders for my pain. My husband and I also purchased a Sleep Number bed and it helps greatly also. I was diagnosed with fibro in 1997.
