    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,

    Talk with your physician and other health professionals about your treatment plan. If your care is complex, ask for written instructions to help you stay the course or ask if you can tape the session so that you can go over it at home. Make a list of questions to ask at each office visit. Keep in mind that other members of your treatment team include the professionals at your doctor's office, your pharmacist, as well as the rehabilitation professionals that you may visit. Each has a specialized area of expertise that can enhance your treatment. Being involved gives you a sense of control and well-being that helps keep you motivated.
