    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,

    I just started having this terrible pain recently. It hurts to swift at all or bend over. Sometimes it even hurts if you touch it. It is on my back on the right side under the middle of my ribs. It is killing me and feels like it's under them, not the skin or anything over them. Please help me!

    There is no way for anyone over an internet message board to know what that could be. You need to see a doctor asap for evaluation and treatment.

    If cost is an issue, look into free or low-cost clinics in your area. If it becomes an emergency then get to a local hospital emergency room right away. They must treat you regardless of ability to pay.

    I hope you can get this resolved soon.
