    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,
    WebMD Message Boards Management

    Hello all, :)

    I'm Chrissy and I'll be your new moderator here on our Migraines & Headaches Community.
    I've had them. I understand the pain involved and so does my daughter!

    They come and go at times, and mine seem to be more ocular and happen for me under stress.

    If you'd like to journal today and tomorrow or over the weekend, please feel free to do so here.

    I'll be putting up the regular journal here on Monday!
    I look forward to being here with you all and helping support each other.
