    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,

    FOR ANYBODY THAT JUST CAME DOWN WITH THIS DISEASE OR ANYONE WHO IS STILL WA.KING, IT IS IMPAIRITIVE THAT YOU GO TO A PHYSICAL THERAPIST TO KEEP YOUR MUSCLES STRONG. I CAN'T STRESS THIS ENOUGH!!! I WISH I HAD SOMEONE THAT STRESSED THAT TO ME. NOW I AM FIGHTING TO GET MY MUSCLES BACK SO I CAN WALK AGAIN.

    Hi Pam

    Thanks for this information. I am having terrible difficulty walking with back problems and pain, plus stiffness in my thighs, but was thinking about going back to the Gym on the elyptical - I guess reading your post it should help me. Am I correct?
