    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,

    Most importantly, please try and include the following information:

    1. What do you think it is?

    2. Has it been present for a long time and, if so, how long?

    3. Pain - how severe, is it chronic, does it come and go, do you wake up from the pain, is it better in the morning or night. On a scale of one to ten with ten being the worst pain imaginable where are you?

    4. Location - where is the problem, is it tooth, gum, bone, lips, cheek TMJ etc.

    5. Size - How big is it

    If you include the above information when you post your concerns, our experts will be better able to help you find the answers you need.
