    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,

    I am very into self education when it comes to health. I have found a book I really found useful. It is called The Migraine Brain, By Dr Carolyn Bernstine, I really feel like this helped me to understand what was going on in my head while having migraines. If anyone else has read any helpful books could you post them? I have a few coming soon on MSG and excitotoxicans that will share my opinion of later.
