    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!

    Every person with a neurological condition or disorder started out with a symptom that hurt, jerked (tremor or worse), or that just was unusual and didn't make sense! But, sometimes our bodies have strange symptoms without it meaning there is a verifiable disorder or condition.

    So, how do you cope with strange symptoms that interfere in some way with daily life?

    We are peers who have been through the unknown of mysterious symptoms, or ones that doctors couldn't figure out. Come talk here and let's help each other figure out, "What next?"
