    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.

    Have not been diagnosed w/Ms. My symptoms are varied. Lightheadedness, dizziness...that does not occur with change of sitting up or standing. During the night I am awakened by numbness and tingling in my hands and they are asleep. I am awakened by bouts of dizzy spells. I am 45, white, female, no insurance, but I know something is wrong. There are times where it feels like "car sickness" for long periods of time. I am fatigued, depressed...and not sure what to do...This is not in my "HEAD"...something is wrong..
