    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,

    When I was 18 years old, I was first diagnosed with Scheummans disease. I tried to lead a normal life. I felt as though I was healthy & a very sporty type. I even worked. Although it is now nearly 4 years ago that I was diagnosed with degenerative bone disease. In these past years, I've been feeling like a guinea pig with my specialist giving me different medications to try. At present, I am on a medication that does work but 1 doesn't. I have also been in hospital having treatment done. To some relief but only last for a few weeks.

    This is my first time using this site, I must add. So any help & other advice would be appreciated.
