    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

    No one knows if you've waited too long.

    I hope that your MD visit was helpful.

    The wise thing to do would be to see your doctor and ask him/her these questions. You can not be diagnosed, treated or given accurate medical advice over an internet message board.

    No, of course not. Please do ask him about the balance issue. This is an issue I will discuss with my own doctor when I see her in Jan. I have had balance issues for some time, fallen twice. It is past time for me to get answers about this.

    Take care, Annette
