    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,

    Waking especially hills

    Even though exercise may sound like it will hurt more than help I found that even though it hurt trying to increase my walking distance from 5 minutes a day to now 1 hour plus hills it is the single most effective thing that has helped my myofascial low back pain. It does hurt while you are doing it but overall you can do more and will feel better. My nerves were oversensitized and small movements would hurt, once I got to doing hills these small and frquent injuries lessend and now I have gone about 3 months or more withoout one. I still hurt but can progress some.
    hope this helps.
