    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.

    Hello, Chris,

    Thanks for sharing some of your background and challenges, it's great that you continue to enjoy the activities you love.

    Did you lose the leg prior to the MS diagnosis? Are you taking any MS drug therapy and/or physical therapy?

    Hi Kim,i did lose my leg before i was told i had ms,i lost it in
    1986,due to a car accident.currently,i am not on any drug
    therapy,i just dont like to take meds,i guess maybe down
    the road i will,or maybe not.i do do physical therapy,because
    i have had back surgeries in my low back,so yes i do.i also
    work out at home as much as i can.i just try to do what i can.
