    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

    Introducing Your New Moderator!

    I hope you'll all join me in welcoming Andie to the Migraines and Headaches Exchange!

    I'll still be around if she or you need me but I am sure I leave you in good hands. We are very fortunate that Andie agreed to join us at WebMD. And I'm sure she'll soon be saying hello and sharing a bit about herself.


    P.S. Keep in mind that Andie and the rest of the moderating team work for WebMD and are NOT Health Professionals. That role belongs to our Experts.

    Hello Everyone!

    I can see by reading your threads that this a great group, very supportive and helpful to one another, and I'm very happy to be joining you!

    I'm looking forward to getting to know each of you and providing the resources, feedback and any assistance you may need.

    I have some big shoes to fill following Caprice, but I will do my best to keep us running smoothly!

    Thanks for the welcome!

    Welcome to the board discussions--we certainly need you! Can you comment on 'migraine syndrome or migraine without the pain, usually showing up in later years with folks who have had migraines?
    Specifically, can you talk about how to treat it?
    When it's 24/7 and ranges from mild to really bad symtoms, including head pressure--sensitivity to lights and sounds and etc., does it always need treatment by an anti-depressant and migraine meds or can just one or the other take care of the problem? Thanks

    Hi Yanksgirl and thank you for the welcome. Unfortunately, I am not a qualified Health Professional to answer your questions for you.

    However, what I would suggest is that you post your question as a separate thread for our Expert, Dr. Collins, to comment on. Please include your specific questions in the post with a clear thread title for the Expert to respond to.

    I hope that helps and will be watching to see if I can assist in any other way.

    Take care,
