    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,
    WebMD Message Boards Management

    Dear angel,

    You can start by reading the links listed at the top of this page: The Multiple Sclerosis Health Center, Videos, and FAQs.

    Also type these organizations' names into your internet search box:


    The National Multiple Sclerosis Society
    The Multiple Sclerosis Association of America
    The Multiple Sclerosis Foundation
    The Multiple Sclerosis Resource Centre in the UK
    Mayo Clinic
    Cleveland Clinic
    National Institutes of Health (NIH)
    National Institutes of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS)

    There are many more sources on the internet about MS, too. Visiting these websites will provide you with even more links to info on research, treatments, and studies.

    Hope this helps.

    Kim
