    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,

    Try an Orthopedic Doctor or a neurosurgeon

    This is a shot in the dark, but perhaps you should try talking either with an Orthopedic doctor or a neurosurgeon, either one could help you eliminate a number of possible problems that might be affecting you. Also, try and notice how any particular sitting or laying positions that either benefit or bother your condition. Keep a record of any times that you trip, feel very dizzy, if you have pain down the back of your legs. Note if there are any numbness also. But most importantly, "do this right away"! Your pain is a message, and when this message is sharp and hard, you need to act fast. Good luck
