    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!

    Restless legs

    I have had fm all of my life I believe and I am now 67. For the restless legs I find when they are bad I need to drink more water. If I get dehydrated and I do when travelling I have to remind myself to drink more water. Only water helps, not juice or tea or coffee.
    When I was in my 40's my body felt like it was in it 60's and now that I am in my 60's my body is in its 80's. I am allergic to most pain medication so I just take Tylenol xtra strength.
    You have to learn to say no to demands.
