    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!

    for the past month I have been having severe abdonimal pain and my gallbladder was already taken out. I have also been nausous daily, nothing makes this pain feel better. the pain increases when I am hungry and increases even more when i eat anything. my blood test and ultrasound came back normal but the pain is so severe I have not been able to work. I don't know what to do or what is causing my pain.
