    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,

    If money and other obstacles were no object and of the treatments and help that you're already aware, what would be on your wish list to help to ease your pain or simply make your day-to-day life easier?

    First, and foremost, an end to all pain. Then, a cure for degenerrative bone disease, and E.D. A nice new Harley Davidson wouldn't hurt, either.

    Be well, all. Dennis

    Here's to a new Harley Davidson for you, Dennis, once the pain is handled.

    I have to say, I am in a way better place than I was a year ago but, I feel like I still have a long way to go.

    I have an appointment with a new pm and I am wishing that he will take over my medication management and this will end my search for somone to take my case that will do everything PM has to offer and is covered by my insurance finally.

    I'm very interested in a stimulator and medication pump but, I am not sure if those are in the cards for me.

    And above all, It would be nice if I could loose about 75 lbs and Ilbeit that will help my pain tremendosly (sp?)

    Again Caprice, love the topic...Lita

    I hope you get your wish, Lita.

    And I wish you well with your weight loss. I've been working on that myself for the last year or so and have lost quite a bit of weight. It hasn't helped one of my pain conditions (I didn't expect it to either) but has helped another which was my goal.
