    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,

    Hi Anon_134528,

    I'm curious if you are already taking medication for high blood pressure? This can sometimes cause bradycardia.
    Please make sure to speak with your health professional about this concern. I wish you the best!
    Best Wishes! Amelia

    Hi Andrew! You've responded to a thread a few weeks old - I suggest you start a new discussion (orange button on the top of this column, select discussion from drop down menu).

    That way members can your question as new and respond -
