    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!

    I am TRYING to find the earliest symptoms of kidney failure. I have a severe chain feeling around my midframe but most of the pain and discomfort is in the kidney area. It runs in my family and so far through many OTHER health issues, kidney
    problems just recently came to be my suspicion. HOW and WHAT are the symptoms of kidney problems in the early stages.
    Thank You, Shirley
