    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 excited to be involved in this MS community. I have been working with MS patients since 1984 and it has taken me many years to start to think that I understand this disease a little bit. I am always learning and find that my most rewarding educational experiences come from patients.
    We should be able to have a rewarding exchange of ideas and I am looking forward to our interactions.

    Dear Dr Lava,
    Having a lengthy professional history of nursing/psychology, I appreciate your time and efforts to help this group sort through so many of the issues which we battle every day.

    It isn't often that we have the availability to access direct contact with an MD, through a source as common as the internet. The more professionals we can pull over to the "patient" side of the equation, the better.

    I find that the more research I do, the better I am able to discuss on-going issues and situations with my own MD.
    Your presence here on this board is greatly appreciated, by so many of us. Just thought I would let you know we are grateful.
