    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 have had this for at least 10 years now and my attacks are getting much more with bad chest pain. I just was at the ER on Thursday thought I was having a heart attack this time. I have had all the test with heart and I too am in the clear this time too. I just wish they knew how to really help us. I have been there with all of you. What can we do to stop the attacks is what I want to know. Some times I am woke up in the middle of the night. I have been eating different nothing is helping.
    I am just thinking every attack is this my time and I am not ready to go.
