    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

    New Posts, Old Posts, Recent Posts, Good Posts, etc. They're all not the same!

    I have to jump in and post this tip because I'm running into members who need there questions answered in a more timely manner, yet they keep posting their questions to threads as old as 12 months!

    Just because the tabs on the right side of your screen says, "Popular Discussions" doesn't mean that the members who posted that thread, or participated in that thread, are still a part of this Pain Management Exchange (or even check the discussion again). These posts are just the ones that have generated the highest tally for responses. Be sure to check the dates of the posts you would like to participate in and if you have a question that warrants an immediate response, then post start your own thread. If you have to comment on an oldie, but goodie, then go right ahead. The "Most Recent Discussions" are acutally recent.
