    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,
    WebMD Message Boards Management

    I just signed in, I have been fighting this thing called fibro for 14yrs. Doctors after doctors, feel like a bouncing ball. I'm in so much pain, my life is a sure challenge. I need to be able to talk with others in the same boat. How do YOU cope?

    I have been managing moderate to severe chronic pain for over 35 years. My conditions are listed in my story and include fibro. I work hard at daily focusing on the good in my life - the blessings - and trying to keep a positive attitude. It is not easy, but it can be done and we can rise above circumstances and enjoy life.
