    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.

    IF YOU ARE DRINKING BOOZE AT ALL PLEASE STOP NOW. HAVE YOU CHANGED ANYTHING? FOODS, DRINK, MEDS?

    JUST TRY ALL DIFFERENT THINGS TO STOP THE PAIN. BREATHING EXERCISE ALWAYS HELPS ME. TRYING TO RELAX. IF IT GETS TOO BAD GO TO ER.

    I DISAGREE ABOUT NO TX. LOW V/L MEANS TX MEDS MAY WORK BETTER FOR YOU.
