    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,

    You had an MRI for what? Hope it's not serious. I hate waiting for results also. Sometimes that's the worst part.

    Waiting is very frustrating!!! Have you gotten the results back yet? Good news or bad news?

    My rheumy now has a "Patient Portal" where all labs, message and tests results are posted when they are received so you don't have to call to get results you can just go online and look at them.

    Let us know what you find out!

    With love, with patience and with faith, we'll make our way.
